Minor D1 Bound
It was just last week that we profiled Brimmer & May junior forward Jordan Minor as one of the biggest stock-risers in New England following an offer from Merrimack College, who will be headed to the division I ranks next year after joining the Northeast Conference.
Well, only a few days later, Minor committed to Merrimack and head coach Joe Gallo.
He confirmed his commitment via his twitter account:
Minor began his high school career at Boston College High School before reclassifying at Brimmer & May last year. He landed an early offer from Brown last winter but saw his recruitment fall off a little bit in the months afterward.
His stock surged back up since the beginning of the season though as he has put up high numbers across the board while differentiating himself with an elite motor that allows him to play bigger than he is inside the paint and pile up rebounds and blocks as well as points. Minor is also very mobile with good feet, which should make him a major weapon on the defensive end of the floor at the next level.
News of Minor's commitment got praise across the board on social media. Mass Rivals director Vin Pastore praised his “outstanding grades and excellent character.” Brimmer and May and Rivals coach Tom Nelson called Minor “a wonderful young man who worked hard on and off the court for this opportunity.” Even Brooks coach John McVeigh, a Merrimack alum, commented, “Always happy to see my former college team sign a kid with high character, great grades, and a relentless work ethic. Plays as hard as anyone we’ve faced on the court this year and just keeps getting better.”
