Many high school athletes play basketball and football, it’s rare to come across a player who has Division I offers for both sports. This is the case for Westminster Academy (Fla.) rising junior Dwayne Wimbley Jr.

On the basketball court, the 6-foot-7 wing is a tenacious defender that can get to the basket and shoot efficiently from deep. He averaged 11.3 points on a tournament-leading 62.5% clip from the field during Peach Jam and helped lead Nightrydas Elite to an E16 title.

Wimbley has picked up nine Division I offers, including a notable one from Florida State. Since June 15, Wimbley has heard from college coaches representing Florida Gulf Coast, Florida International, Florida State, Hampton, Loyola-Chicago, Florida, Louisiana State, Dayton, Southern Methodist, Central Florida, Appalachian State and Jacksonville State.

The son of former Miami forward Dwayne Wimbley, the 2025 prospect says that UM, UCF, Florida Atlantic and Dayton are the schools that he wants to receive offers from the most.

As his junior season doesn’t start until November, Wimbley told LifeWallet Sports that he wants to use this time to improve his “ball-handling and my mid-range pull-up because a lot of people know that I could drive against almost anybody I want, but people are starting to scout that and they’re starting to try to take charges on me so I’ve been working with my coach on mid-range and floaters.”

Wimble also began playing football at the high school level this past spring, and the wide receiver has already received offers from Louisville and Bethune-Cookman.

This decision to play football, according to Wimbley, was fueled by wanting to take advantage of his youth.

“Really just to have fun, to take advantage of my youth because we don’t get the time back,” Wimbley said. “And you never know what opportunities will come.”

Wimbley noted that he would play both basketball and football in college if he “get[s] the choice to.”
