Still no evidence one way or the other of him signing or not.

I'm leaning towards him not signing (yet) as his high school finally made a post about a teammate signing with Maine.

He's still listed as a UVA commit on Perfect Game. But it took them some time to clear Amari Paula from our 2020 commit list even after Paula signed with Eastern Kentucky. And PG still has Trey Boll as a 2020 commit even though he plays football at Wake Forest. So that's not a definitive source.

But he still lists himself as a UVA commit in the bio of his private Instagram account.

What could be complicating things for Minckler is that he spent a good deal of time in Thailand before moving to New Hampshire to finish high school and become an American college baseball player.

There may be additional work required to clear his academic standing before we are able to sign him. And most sports, including baseball, that were part of this signing period are open for signing letters of intent until August 2021.

I've thought about tweeting to his high school team to ask if he has signed / will sign. But that could awkward if either or both sides have moved on, so I'll just let it play out naturally a while longer.
