On Tuesday, four-star combo guard Judah Mintz told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he finalized an official visit to Pitt, scheduled for the weekend of June 4-6.
“I am looking forward to really just building a relationship in person,” Mintz told PSN. “I’ve been talking to them on the phone, but just seeing what the campus is like. I’ve actually never been there, so. Seeing what their campus is like, seeing their dorms and stuff, just those sort of little things, but building the relationship is the biggest thing.”
Mintz, a 6-foot-4, 175-pound guard who plays his high school ball for Oak Hill Academy. The Washington D.C. native is ranked as the No. 75 player in the nation according to Rivals, and he is currently being recruited by many high-major schools.
Mintz said that he will be heading up to Pitt with his mom and dad, and potentially his 14-year-old brother.
“I’ve talked to Coach Milan Brown, and Coach Capel too, and they want me to be a lead guard and play right away,” he said about Pitt’s pitch. “Coming in this year, they’re going to have a senior guard. So, just being able to play off the bat. They like how I can play on both sides of the ball.”
He is trying to set up visits to Northwestern, Penn State, and Texas Tech, and has an unofficial visit planned to Georgetown on June 8. At the moment, Pitt is his only scheduled official visit.
