Juston Mincy talks Wake Forest

Recruiting is picking up for Juston Mincy out of Southwest DeKalb High School in Decatur, Ga. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety was offered by Western Kentucky soon after his season ended, but saw three offers come his way this spring from Marshall, Tennessee, and Wake Forest. He talks of the Demon Deacs here...

"Wake Forest offered me three weeks ago," said Juston Mincy. "They came to see me in person, and then I called Coach Galloway. He said he really liked that I was a team player. He likes that I bring a physical aspect to the defense and believes I have the potential to come in and help the team.

"I haven't made it up for a visit yet. I'm planning on going to a camp this summer. It's a good program from what I know about it. They haven't been one of the top teams in the ACC, but they're on the rise."

Southwest DeKalb had a huge senior class in 2010 which saw T.J. Stripling and Ken Malcome sign with Georgia, Sherrod Golightly sign with South Carolina, Marcques Dixon sign with Tennessee, and Juston's older brother, Jonathon Mincy, sign with Auburn. Mincy says he's also been hearing from a few of those schools.

"I was at Auburn's spring game," Mincy said. "I've also been hearing from Kentucky. South Carolina and Illinois are showing the most interest. I think Illinois is close to offering and would like me to come visit. Miami from the ACC is one of the schools that came by the high school during the spring.

"I'm going to take my visits this summer and if I find one that feels like another home to me, that would be perfect. Finding a coaching staff I get along well with is also important. I'm just looking for the best fit."

Mincy started out at outside linebacker as a sophomore starter for the Southwest DeKalb Panthers. He moved to free safety in his second season on varsity.

"It was a pretty good year, but I plan on doing better as a senior," Mincy said. "I made All-County, All-Region, and second team All-State.

"I'm not sure on all of my stats, but I know I made 42 tackles. Tackling is my biggest strength. I'm a solid, fill-in-the-hole tackler. I'm a pretty good cover dude and working on getting better. Next year I'm going to be playing some on offense in the slot."
