After two years at McLennan (Texas) CC, Minor made an immediate impact at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. He tied the school record for wins, going 10-3, 2.20 with 110 strikeouts in as many innings. Though he's small at 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, he works at 88-90 mph with his fastball. He opened some eyes by hitting 93 during the Southland Conference tournament. He also spins a breaking ball well and throws strikes.
