Jordan Minor, NEC center transfer, hearing from multiple B1G programs, per report
Jordan Minor out of Merrimack entered the transfer portal immediately following the end of the season. Merrimack, which won the NEC Tournament but was declined a bid to the NCAA Tournament due to NCAA rules regarding the jump from DII to DI, defeated a Fairleigh Dickinson team that shocked Purdue in the first round Friday night.
And Minor was probably Merrimack’s top player from that team. The powerful 6-foot-8 center out of Kingston, Mass. has played with the Warriors for 4 seasons and now looks to play his final year elsewhere.
Minor has heard from at least 3 B1G schools, among many other programs across the nation. According to a report from Jake Weingarten, Minor has heard from Ohio State, Iowa and Maryland.

Minor is a legitimate Power 6 starter
Minor was an elite rebounder for the Warriors and their most consistent scorer. He totaled at least 10 points in every game he played last season except for one. The experiences center very nearly averaged a double-double too, putting up 17.4 points and 9.4 rebounds per game.
He played well against decent competition, too. Minor dropped 19 points and 7 rebounds in Merrimack’s season opener against St. Johns and totaled 25 and 10 against Vermont a few weeks later. Those were the 2 best teams the Warriors faced all season that Minor participated in; he missed Merrimack’s game against Providence in November.
