Georgia Tech has offered a scholarship to one of the Peach State’s rising prospects.
Buford (Ga.) quarterback Kyle Manley says the Yellow Jackets are looking like a strong leader in his recruitment.
“They offered a couple of weeks ago,” he said. “I went up there for a practice and then went to their game against Auburn last weekend. It was a lot of fun, a nice win. I’m really impressed with their program.”
Thinking about a commitment?
“It’s crossed my mind,” he said. “I don’t want to wait too long and lose my chance. I’ll probably make a decision pretty soon. I’m hoping to go back there with my parents and make sure they feel good about everything.”
Manley (6-3, 185, 4.8) said he’s also received calls from Cal and William & Mary this week.
“I visited Cal this summer,” he said. “It’s a great school, a great atmosphere. I thought the campus was beautiful. They have a real good reputation with quarterbacks, and the academics are real strong. It’s kind of like Tech, just away from home. They’d be No. 2 on my list right now.”
Georgia, Duke and Stanford have also expressed interest in Manley, who threw for 1,200 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior. Those schools are also high on his academic profile, which includes a 3.4 GPA and an 1170 on the SAT.
