4-star DE Planning Clemson Official
When asked if he has any current favorites in the recruiting process, Minton responded, "I really don't have a leader right now. I like Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Louisville and Clemson. I like all those schools"
"I have two official visits scheduled so far. I am going to Virginia Tech on December 9 and Kentucky on December 18. I think Louisville and Clemson will also get a visit."
Clemson assistant Marion Hobby is recruiting the talented defender for the Tigers. "He called last week. He seems pretty excited about my interest in Clemson. He tells me he likes the way I play. He came up and watched me play a game this season. He wants me to come up for a visit. We have talked about the weekend of their banquet, but I am going to have to see what works best for my schedule. It will probably be sometime in December or early January," Minton said.
Milnon's commitment timing is not clear at this time. "It's pretty questionable right now. More than likely I will take all my visits and then make my decision. If I do take a visit and something stands out and I know it is right, then I could make a commitment," he said. What will be most important to the talented defender as he selects a college? "I will look at academics and academic support. I will also look to see where I have a good relationship with the coaches. Not just the defensive line coach, but also the defensive coordinator and the head coach. I will also look at how I interact with the players and how I fit in the program," he said.
Playing time will not be a major factor for Minton. "It is important in some ways, but if the coaches want to redshirt me it won't be a problem for me. It will help me adjust to things," he added.
