"I like Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Miami, and South Carolina. Clemson is my favorite because they send me lots of letters and they run the same offense that we do. None of the schools have offered yet."

What does Mingo like about the other teams on his list?

Florida: "I went to the Nike Camp there, and it was a nice place."
Georgia: "I've been there twice and I like the coaches and facilities."
Miami: "I like the football team and the area."
South Carolina: "They send me a whole lot of mail and things like that."

What is Mingo looking for most in a school?

"I want a school with a winning tradition and good academics."

Joe expects to have a decision sometime in mid November. His Clinch County team will be the favorite to repeat in GA class-A once again in 2003.

Note From Scott Kennedy - Mingo will not be recruited as a quarterback, but he is a dynamite high school quarterback that will play wide receiver or corner on the next level. Despite not having blazing speed, Mingo has the quickness and "wiggle" to play either of those two positions in college.
