"I have had a lot of coaches come through here to scout me the last couple
of week," added Jonathon Mincy. "Coach Cooper (LSU) came by Tuesday
and offered me. North Carolina came by here a week or two back and offered me.
The North Carolina coach told me that he was going to take the video back home,
and then he came by practice and told my coach I had an offer. Miami and Oklahoma
came by the school last week and offered, and I am expecting some more too."
Which schools have now offered?
"North Carolina, LSU, Auburn, Maryland, Oklahoma, Miami, Michigan, Ole Miss, South Carolina came by here last week and offered me too. Toledo came
by last week offered me."
One would think that Mincy was showing out in practices to garner all of these
offers, but he was actually running track and not practicing during this time
"I just started practicing the other day. I missed most of the spring to
run track. Most of the coaches just wanted to eye ball me to see if I was as
tall as I am listed. But I have been at the practices helping them out. I just
have not suited up."
The Gamecocks offered recently; what does he know about South Carolina?
"I do not know too much about the history of South Carolina, but I watched
a couple of their games last year on TV, and they have a really solid program."
"They won the national championship a few years back and are always playing
"I really do not know too much about their football program."
"I know Oklahoma is a real/real big football program so I am happy they
started recruiting me real hard. They sent their DL coach to see me, and I got
an offer in the mail last week."
What are Jonathan's camp plans this summer?
"I have not started talking to my coaches about the camps yet. June 2nd
I am going to Tennessee for that camp. I will be going to that camp for sure."
There are two more schools that have not offered that Mincy has been in talks
"Georgia Tech came by last week, and they said they would get back the
first day I started practicing again. They said I am high on their wish list.
They just want to see me in person so hopefully that comes through. Georgia
has been talking to me some recently too. They came by practice, and they want
me to come to their camp and see me up close."
Which schools has Mincy visited this spring?
"Tennessee, Auburn, Ole miss, Georgia Tech, Clemson, and Georgia."
Anybody else out there that Mincy talks to a lot that has not been mentioned?
"I talk to Coach Price at Ole Miss pretty much every week. They were one
of the first schools to offer me, and I also talk to the Tennessee coaches a
lot. They were actually the first school to offer me, and then Ole Miss offered
me the next day."
Who would Jonathan like to see offer him next?
"Georgia and Georgia Tech, but I really want to see Alabama come in the
picture. They also came by my school last week. I gave them my highlight tape,
and hopefully I will hear from them soon."
