Pitt Commit Judah Mintz, Pitt Recruits Raise Stock in Nike EYBL Play



Over the past few weeks, elite prospects from all over the nation have been competing on the Nike EYBL circuit, including numerous players that Pitt is actively going after.

Pitt’s lone commit in the 2022 class, Judah Mintz, certainly performed at an elite level throughout the past few weeks. Mintz, a 6-foot-4 combo guard, averaged 18.2 points per game over 11 contests.

Mintz converted 72 of his 122 field goals, a 59% mark. He also knocked down 48 of his 58 free-throw attempts, as well as eight of his 21 three-point attempts (38%). Leading his team to the Peach Jam Quarterfinals, Mintz’s name was blowing up all over twitter for his stellar performance over the past couple of weeks.

Another prospect that rose his stock the past few weeks is Dominick Barlow, one of Pitt’s top priorities in the class of 2022.

Barlow is a 6-foot-9 small forward/power forward prospect whom Pitt hosted for a visit in early summer. Barlow’s first high-major offer came from Jeff Capel and Pitt, but after his play in recent weeks, he now holds offers from Miami, Kansas, Seton Hall, Xavier, and Illinois.

“Obviously, it is extremely important just knowing that they were there when nobody else was,” Barlow told PSN about Pitt being the first big-name school to offer. “Our relationship is great and I am happy that I have the possibility to go there.”

Throughout his 11 games in EYBL play, he averaged 12.5 points per game, while knocking down 62% of his shots (51 of 82). He also was a very consistent shooter from the line, hitting a game-tying free throw to send his quarterfinal matchup against Mintz’s Team Durant to overtime. Barlow grabbed 4.4 rebounds per game and 1.4 blocks per game.

Another impressive performance came from Bryce Lindsay, one of the guards who visited Pitt earlier this summer.

Lindsay, a 6-foot-3 guard from Maryland, averaged 9.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game, while shooting 37% from the field and 32% from three-point range.
