Three-star tight end Jeff Minemyer out of Ebensburg (Pa.) Bishop Carroll has cancelled his official visit to West Virginia on October 14th. What is the 6-foot-6, 245-pounder planning to do instead?
"My parents had a child and the baptism is on that Sunday, so I talked to the coaches at West Virginia and I plan to take an unofficial visit for the game that weekend still," he said. "I also plan to take an unofficial to Rutgers on October 8th. I want to see how they play against West Virginia since those are two of my top teams.
"I like coach Susan at Rutgers. I have a really good relationship with him and they were the second school to offer me and send a lot of handwritten letters. Meanwhile, West Virginia has a nice campus and is only two hours away. They are both my top schools and it's going to be tough to pick just one of them. I think I could possibly decide after taking both unofficial visits."
The No. 27 tight end in the country hasn't completely dropped the rest of the schools from his list.
"I still do like Duke and Louisville," he said. "I did see Louisville's bad loss to South Florida last week and that was a little disappointing. It does pull you away from them a little bit. I've been receiving a lot of information recently from Syracuse and North Carolina State as well. They both want film which I'm in the process of getting out to them."
Minemyer has helped Bishop McCarroll to a 4-0 start including a big 14-13 win over Bishop McCort last week.
"They were ranked the ninth best team in the state and we won on a blocked extra point in overtime," he said. "The win means a lot to this team and has set the tone for the whole season. Now we just have to keep on rolling and hopefully we'll be 15-0 at the end of the season after winning a state championship.
"So far this season I have eight catches for 60 yards and a two-point conversion. On defense I have 30 tackles, two sacks, a bunch of hurries and pass deflections as well. I'm really happy with how the team is doing and I think I'll be catching more balls as the season progresses. We're doing well and winning and that's all that matters."
