DE Mincey improving even more

Defensive end Justin Mincey out of Folkston (Ga.) Charlton County is working out his eligibility at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va. The 6-foot-5, 275-pounder committed to Florida State back in February, but is the prospect still committed to the Seminoles?
"I'm still committed there because I like everything about them," he said. "I feel comfortable and everything there is what I imagined it would be. Plus all the FSU fans love you too, it just clicked all together for me. Besides that, they are all great coaches and great people. Bobby Bowden is a great guy and I like everything about him."
Of course, the defensive end must qualify at Hargrave first.
"It's an experience that will get you better on the field, in school and as a person," he said. "I'm more responsible now, it's kind of like growing up all at once. I like it so far because I feel a lot better and I'm much quicker too."
How has the adjustment to life at Hargrave been?
"It's been a little rough, but it's getting better. I still miss home," he said. "The military aspect has been a good experience though."
The four-star prospect went on to discuss the rest of his team.
"Everybody on this team is great and we're going to win it all. The defensive line is filled with monsters and it's been a great experience working with these top recruits," he said. "I've been able to stay in shape and become a better player. I know I'm improving by staying lower and tightening my technique. I used to get up high and sloppy, but everything is jammed in tight now."
The No. 65 player in the country in 2005 as named all-state, all-region and all-area as he accounted for 86 tackles and nine sacks.
