Minor gaining momentum

Schools have really taken notice of two sport athlete Raymon Minor. The basketball and football star from Richmond (Va.) Benedictine School has been a hot name in the recruiting world lately, picking up three offers in the span of two days.
"Yesterday I picked up offers from Miami and Washington State and today I got one from Wisconsin," said the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Minor. "I talked to Coach Lilly and he brought me up to his office to talk to a Coach Scott from Miami. He told me that they wanted to offer me. The same type of thing happened with Washington State and Wisconsin.
"I know Miami has a very storied history in football," he said. "I know they play hard. I've never been there or met the coaches so I'd like to go down there and meet everyone and see the campus for myself.

"I could see myself playing at Washington State," Minor said. "I'd like to get away from home. This experience would allow me to get out and see the world.
"I know Wisconsin has won the Big Ten championship three times in a row but other than that I don't know too much about the school," he said. "I'd like to go up to Wisconsin and meet the coaches and see how it is."
With 13 offers from schools like Clemson, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, North Carolina and others Minor is going to have a lot to think about when it comes to making a decision.
"None of the schools are really standing out right now," said Minor. "I'm just trying to finish school and then 'll sit down with my mom, family and coaches and just go from there. I'd really like to go to the schools before I make a decision."
That being said, there are still a lot of other schools showing interest in Minor.
"I talk to Penn State, Ohio State, Florida State, USF and Iowa," he said. "I think Iowa will be the next to offer because my coach told me that they are looking at my transcript and they could offer me sometime this week."
At Benedictine, basketball is king but Minor thinks he has a better future in football.
"I'm going to play football in college," explained Minor. "I like outside linebacker and wide receiver. I don't have a favorite I just like playing."
Minor has a good idea of what he is looking for in his school.
"Well first of all I want to see how their school is and what their graduation rate is," he said. "I would like to see if they have my major and good coaches that are dedicated to me and push me. I'd like to eventually go on to law school."
Minor will be participating in the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour in Richmond on April 13.
