The son of former Husker great Mike Minter, the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder recently got an invite to Nebraska's junior day.
"Nebraska has really started to get on me a lot and they want me to go to their junior day in February," said Minter. "I think it's really going well with them. I talked with Coach Bo about a week ago, so the relationship is there. That is good."
"I have been talking with the Purdue coach a lot, he's been telling me about their school and what it's like there" said Minter, who's most recent offers are from Kansas and the Boilermakers. "Coach Gil got fired at Kansas, so I haven't really been talking with their new coaching staff yet."
While Gil did get fired, it didn't take him long to find a new job. The former Husker quarterback became Liberty's head coach and immediately hired Minter's father to be one of his assistants. But, don't expect Jr. to follow his father, he's staying put in Lincoln.
"I feel like that its in my best interest to stay here. All the coaches now know where I'm at. If I left, they might lose contact with me," said the 2013 standout who has locked down two junior days. "Right now I'm going to the Nebraska and Purdue one for sure. I don't know about any others yet, but it might happen."
In nine games, Minter rushed for over 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns on just over 130 carries. His success earned him a spot on the Lincoln Journal Star's Super All-State team, despite just being a junior. While much of the talk is about Minter on the offensive side of the football, it's likely he will play defense at the next level.
"I was excited to make the team in the paper, I felt like I had a great year," said Minter. "The team (North Star) I wish could have had a better year, maybe made it to the playoffs, but for me from an individual stand point I felt that I did my part."
