Minchey (6-foot-1, 207 pounds) played for Pope John Paul II (Tennessee), where he posted 3,280 yards, 32 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his junior season. The knights they lost their playoff game with Brentwood Academy (Tennessee) this past weekend, so their season is over. However, Minchey will be involved in the All-American Bowl on Jan. 7, which will be on NBC.
According to 247 Sports, Minchey is 12th best quarterback in its class and No. 4 overall in the state. Steve Wiltfong reports that Notre Dame is a school to watch for Minchey, who will visit South Bend for this weekend’s game against Boston College. Minchey has 16 total offers, including ones from Memphis, Michigan State, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
The news dropped Pittsburgh to No. 44 in the recruiting rankings for 2023. Of their 16 current commitments, none are four- or five-star prospects, and they now have no quarterback in this recruiting cycle.
