Minter Still Considering His Options

2018 Garden City RB Tra Minter (5-10, 185) could leave early if the right opportunity comes along and he'll be making a decision in the next two weeks on what he plans to do...


"I have been talking a lot with Utah StateTexas Tech and Syracuse and right now I am just waiting to see what they are going to do," Minter told JCFootball.com. "I'll be making my decision in the next two weeks on whether I will leave right now or if I will stay.

"There's good options to stay because we have a good team and program here (at Garden City), but I would also love the opportunity to get to a four-year school and get started on that as soon as possible."

The redshirt freshman was a workhorse for Garden City this past season, finishing with 1,255 yards and 10 touchdowns on 291 carries and he gives all the credit to the men in front of him.

"Our line was great this season and it made my life very easy," Minter told JCFootball.com back in December. "I'm a scatback, but I have power too. I can run any play that's called.

"I love to get into space and make guys miss. I hit the hole quickly and I love to run the inside or outside zone plays because that allows me to use my speed and my vision to make plays."

As a prep in Georgia, Minter qualified late in the process, so his options to attend a four-year school were limited. He decided to head to Garden City in order to further his career and hopefully open up options for his future.

Minter will finish up his academic freshman year later this month and he will have four to play three should he decide to sign with a school this summer. If he decides to return, he plans to sign with a school in December and he'd have three years to play two following the 2017 football season.
