Kentucky is trending for Creighton basketball transfer Davion Mintz.
This afternoon, recruiting expert Evan Daniels, along with Chad Lykins of The Devils Den, each submitted Crystal Ball picks in favor of Kentucky for the 6-foot-3 graduate transfer.
Mintz, who was originally a three-star prospect in the class of 2016, signed with Creighton out of high school over offers from Kansas State, Marshall, and Bucknell, among others.
During the 2018-19 season, Mintz averaged 9.7 points on 42% shooting and 35% from three to go with 3.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game for the Bluejays. After suffering a high ankle sprain late in the preseason last year, the 6-foot-3 guard opted to redshirt the entire 2019-20 season to preserve his final year of eligibility.
Last week, Mintz announced he would be leaving the program and exploring his transfer options.
“I wish my teammates and coaches nothing but the best moving forward,” Mintz said via Twitter. “I’m not sure what the future holds, but my family and I look forward to seeing what God has planned for me next.”
