6-7 Justin Minaya of Harrington Park, NJ has a decision to make this week. It’s an unusual decision for a basketball prospect in that it’s not between two major programs. Rather, Minaya and his family are working on a decision between signing with USC and joining Frank Martin’s program for next season or signing with Brewster Academy. a prep school in New Hampshire with a highly regarded basketball program, and going thru the recruiting process again next year.
“I’m still talking to my family and I’ve definitely been interested in South Carolina lately,” Minaya said. “I should make a decision by the end of the week. It’s either going to school this summer or going prep. Prep school would give me another year to get stronger and mature as a person. But obviously I’ll get a lot of better if I go and play at South Carolina. It will take me a little bit to mature but I’ll mature probably a little quicker. Me and my family will get it figured out soon.”
Minaya said he is talking a lot to USC a lot and talked Monday with assistant Perry Clark. Martin also is in regular contact. Minaya took an official visit to USC last week.
