The younger brother of New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston is already showing signs of future stardom, though he won’t be graduating from high school for another three years.
Big bro Jameis was plying his trade with the Saints in 2022, after being drafted at No. 1 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015. But he hasn’t quite lived up to the billing in the NFL, though he was a Pro Bowler in 2015 and led the league in passing yards in 2019.
The 29-year-old, who was one of the top recruits in both football and baseball when coming out of high school in 2012, ultimately committed to the Florida State Seminoles as he was allowed to play both sports for the university.
Jonah Is On Track To Become A Pro Himself
Jonah, a QB at Hoover High, looks to be following in his brother’s footsteps as he’s just picked up a scholarship offer from Alabama.
“The offer meant a great deal to me, I honestly didn’t expect it, but I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity,” the youngster told Tide Illustrated’s Brandon Howard. “Heading into the season, I didn’t know what to expect, but I just did my best to be the best teammate possible and play my role. I guess it worked out in my favor, but at the same time, I know the work does not stop.”

“I have been lucky enough to have my brother to lean on during this process. He has taught me a lot, but at the same time, I need to continue to develop my body and continue to let things play out. It’s still super early, so I take things in stride,” he added.
The older Winston signed a two-year extension worth $28 million with New Orleans last March. He ended up playing backup to Andy Dalton after returning from an injury, having started the first three games of the season.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
