case for Memphis basketball’s Josh Minott


Josh Minott isn’t your typical one-and-done NBA Draft prospect.

The Boca Raton, Florida, native wasn’t heavily recruited out of his small high school (St. Andrew’s). He picked Memphis over less than a dozen realistic options, which included Baylor, Florida State and Stanford. Part of that had to do with not only where he went to school but the fact that he didn’t play on an AAU team with an overly high profile – thanks, in large part, to COVID-19.

During Minott’s transition from high school to college, he began generating a significant buzz. His size (6-8), athleticism and versatility helped him stand out during the 2021 Iverson Classic, which also featured the likes of Chet Holmgren, Paolo Banchero, AJ Griffin, Hunter Sallis and Peyton Watson.
