Still a two-horse race for Mincey

Robert Mincey is back on the basketball court and healthy, but a decision has not yet been made about where his future lies: on the football field. At 6'5" and weighing in at 260 lbs., Mincey is a force to be reckoned with on the defensive line. With a slew of offers on the table, Mincey has honed in on two.

"Kansas and Illinois," he said. "It is even between those two."

That means a battle between the Jayhawks' recruiting coordinator, Reggie Mitchell, and the Illini's quarterbacks coach, Jeff Brohm.

"Those two coaches are very sincere and I hear good things about both of them," Mincey said.

Mitchell was at Illinois before he was at Kansas, and he pulled in recruits from all over. Coach Brohm was at Louisville, and he has had his share of successful recruiting as well.

Right now, the plan is for the Fairfield, OH defensive end to select a school after he makes both of his official visits in December. Mincey says that Kansas is sending the most mail, but when it is all said and done, he will decide after he sees the campuses.

"I am for sure visiting both schools before I decide, and I should know sometime before the end of January," the three-star prospect explained.

When asked whether or not he was enjoying the process, Mincey responded how many recruits often do: "I am enjoying it, but it's about time for me to wrap it up. There is a lot of pressure behind it and I am getting close."

"My brother is at Illinois, and Kansas is an up and coming school," he noted. "But both said that I have playing time on the table and there is potential for me to go to either one."

Coach Gill and Coach Zook both hope that he ends up in their colors, but only time will tell. Top Stories
