The last time I spoke to Mincey, Florida was his leader and before that Georgia had the advantage. Is anyone out front now?
"I've been thinking a lot of things," Mincey said. "I want to sit back and look at my options before I name a favorite again."
What stands out about each of his favorites?
Miami: "They put you in the league and I have a lot of kin folk in Orlando and Miami."
Alabama: "Coach Randolph. The way he explained everything with academics first impressed me."
Florida: "I went there for an unofficial trip with my coaches and a teammate and it seemed like a good school."
Auburn: "Their team is pretty good and they've had a good program."
Georgia: "I was born into it. I like the way they play and I love how the defense likes to get in there and get people out."
Mincey has been catching a lot of pressure from the locals in Folkston who have made it all too apparent where they expect him to be when his high school days are done.
"Everyone down here loves Georgia even though we practically almost live in Florida," he said. "They always tell me that it's a tradition at Charlton for every big-time player to go to Georgia, and that's just the way it is. I'm not going to lie. I'm a big dawg fan, too, but it's different when these schools start recruiting you. You look at them a different way. I just want to take my time."
What will be the primary factors that will weigh heaviest on the south Georgia prospect's mind when he makes his decision?
"It will be primarily for educational reasons when I make my choice," he said. "Right now I'm thinking about biology. I'm also going to keep in mind if the school is boring I not. I don't want to go to another town like Folkston where there's not much to do."
Mincey could play any number of positions at the next level, but most schools are currently recruiting him at defensive end. Does he have a preference?
"I'd like to play defensive end, but it really doesn't matter. I can play defensive tackle or tight end as well. I just don't want to put on all that weight and lose my speed."
A whole host of schools have been by Charlton already this year, and Ron Zook became the latest when he dropped by on Tuesday afternoon.
