What happened after the game? "After the game I hung around in the locker room and got to talk to some of the players like [Andre] Caldwell and Chris Leak and I talked to my cousin, Jeremy Mincey." He regaled us with the story of how he and Jeremy found out they were cousins and sounded truly happy to have a new member of his family. Whether that makes a difference in his recruitment remains to be seen.
Who still leads for Justin's services? We asked if the same 3 schools of UGA, UF, UM were his top choices. Justin added, "Tennessee and Alabama and LSU."
What is Justin looking for when he makes his college decision? "I'm just looking for the best school." Is the football tradition and program going to drive him there or is he also interested in the scholastic services his collegiate choice will provide? He replied, "Pretty much the coaching staff... The tradition of the school and style of play. A little bit of both". Is there any school separating themselves at the moment? "I'm pretty much wide open." Is there a leader? "There's no leader right now."
Mincey is a huge force on the defensive line and will make some big-time program very happy when he signs on the dotted line in February. He provides a body that can rush the passer on the edge, yet is big enough to move inside in definite passing situations and provide a pass rush from the interior of the defensive line. The Gators like to use their ends in this manner and Mincey is the prototype of what the Gators like at the defensive end position.
