Manfro waiting on some schools

Wyoming has already offered Steven Manfro, who put up huge numbers in his senior season at Castaic (Calif.) Valencia and now the all-purpose back is waiting on a few other big-time programs to see if they'll offer before National Signing Day.
Boise State and UCLA are the main schools interested in Manfro, who finished with 3,788 all-purpose yards and 41 touchdowns this season, breaking all kinds of records along the way.
Both UCLA and Boise State could be waiting on a few other guys before they make a move on Manfro, a 5-foot-10, 187-pound prospect who seems willing to wait around until the Broncos and Bruins figure out their recruiting situations.
"They're showing interest but they don't know if they need a running back yet or not so I'm guessing if one of their running backs leaves they will need one," Manfro said of UCLA.
"I've been talking to (Boise State) too. Coach (Brent) Pease has been recruiting me and he said they need to wait on a few people to commit or not because they've given out all their scholarships so they have to wait on some other kids so they could offer me."
Wyoming is also a serious option but Manfro plans to wait on those other schools before taking an even stronger look there. The Cowboys run a spread offense - which suits Manfro's strengths perfectly - and they could get him the ball in the open field.
He still hasn't scheduled an official visit to Wyoming but that could be in the works over the next few weeks.
"They run a spread offense and coach (Marcus) Arroyo said I'd be perfect for that because I could catch passes out of the backfield and I can run between the tackles, too," Manfro said.
"I haven't scheduled a visit yet. I'm just trying to wait it out to see what else comes. I still need to schedule a visit. … I'm definitely happy about the way I played this season. I broke a lot of records, I broke a lot of my past season records and a lot of other records, too."
