case for Memphis basketball’s Josh Minott

Josh Minot isn’t the only typical NBA draft prospect.

The Boca Raton, Florida native is not highly recruited outside of his small high school (St Andrews). Memphis picked out less than a dozen realistic options, including Baylor, Florida State and Stanford. Part of that is not just about where he went to school but the fact that he hasn’t played for a very high-profile AAU team – thanks in large part to COVID-19.

During Minot’s transition from high school to college, he started causing quite a stir. His size (6-8), athletic performance and versatility helped him stand out during the 2021 Iverson Classic, which also included the likes of Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero, AJ Griffin, Hunter Sallis and Peyton Watson.
