Bishop Sullivan QB Colt Minson lands his first Division I offer after the recruit757 Showcase

There’s at least one thing that makes the recruit757 Uncommitted Senior Showcase different from any other in the country. College coaches have asked us to include underclassmen because Division I FCS schools have often all but wrapped up their recruiting of seniors by this point. Seeing underclassmen at a showcase like the one we held Monday gives schools like William and Mary, Hampton, Norfolk State, James Madison, and others an opportunity to get a head start on their spring recruiting work.
Bishop Sullivan quarterback Colt Minson came out to get a little extra work in and to showcase for college coaches. That extra work paid off when William and Mary offered him a scholarship on Tuesday night.
Crusaders head coach Chris Scott missed school on Tuesday, but got the call on Tuesday night that Colt now holds a William and Mary offer. Additionally, Bishop Sullivan lineman Altrique Barlow landed an offer from the Tribe.
“(Offensive coordinator) Brennan Marion contacted me, offering Colt and Big Al. He thought Colt was really impressive and polished as a QB, and he loves Big Al’s size and strength,” Coach Scott said.
Head Coach Mike London and several coaches from William and Mary attended Monday’s showcase.
The offer thrilled Minson, who has been working hard to exhibit leadership and skill since taking over the QB1 position at Bishop Sullivan. He played behind Tyler Desue in 2017. Desue is now at the University of Maryland and he’s not far from the top spot on the depth chart at quarterback.
“The camp allowed me to showcase my ability in front of many college coaches. I’m just grateful William & Mary was able to see that I can play,” Minson told recruit757.
Dreams come true if you Set Goals and Work Relentlessly towards them! It is truly an honor to receive an offer from the Prestigious college of William & Mary! I would like to thank Coach London, and @BrennanMarion4 for Believing in me! #7tribe7🔰🔥🏈@coachcscott @HAYDENRETTIG11 pic.twitter.com/iOW51o7Hkm
