"I've been to one of the Duke games when they played Alabama," he said. "It was pretty good, it was a blowout."
Although he plans to take more visits, Mangus has nothing else scheduled at this time.
With interest developing, does Mangus like anybody early?
"I'd love to go to Florida, but I also like the North Carolina schools, I like NC State," he said. "I like the history at Florida, they have a good program, while State is close to home and they're a good academic program. They also have engineering andI'm thinking about that."
A solid student with a 3.0 GPA, Mangus is a track star outside of football placing fifth in the 200 and sixth in the 500 in the state.
Last season as a starter on the gridiron, Mangus ran for 1,184-yards and 13 touchdowns.
So far this season, he has run for 678-yards and seven touchdowns in six games.
"This year is going pretty well, I've increased my speed and that is helping a lot. I'm just trying to score as many times as I can."
