Rowlett, Texas tight end Corey Manges has the attention of college coaches at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds. Offers have already come in from Colorado, New Mexico State, UTSA, Louisiana-Lafayette, Wake Forest, and North Texas.
It is still early in the process, but Manges has Wake Forest high on his list at this point.
"Their coaching staff has a lot of experience and knows what they're doing," Manges said. "I went down there on an unofficial visit this past summer and I really enjoyed myself down there with the coaching staff and stuff. Their players have a good work ethic and know what they're doing. They have everything down."
While at the Wake Forest summer camp, he found out the Demon Deacons were looking at him on the defensive side of the ball. He may be known for tight end, but he does know a thing or two about playing defense.
"Actually I played defense through middle school and I played both ways as a freshman," Manges said. "My sophomore year my coach asked me if I wanted to move to offense."
The Demon Deacons certainly have his attention at this point, but he is still keeping an open mind to new options. In addition to his offers, Manges has also received contact from coaches at Kentucky, Missouri, and Oregon State.
He has yet to schedule any official visits, but look for him to make a few plans in the near future.
"After I take my SAT I'm probably going to schedule one with Wake Forest soon after. I take my SAT October 6," Manges said. "New Mexico State, Wake Forest. I'm not going to schedule an official visit to UNT because it's so close. I can go there without any problems. I'm looking forward to the University of Kentucky because I want to give them a shot."
