Ball State Cardinal Commitment Capsule

Who: Donald Manning >

Vitals: 6-3 235, DE, Plainfield, IL (East)

Other offers: Eastern Michigan, North Dakota State, South Dakota, Southern Illinois, Wyoming

Breakdown: Solid looking true DE. Plays with hand in dirt and standing up as a prep, but will be a true DE as a collegiate. Good quickness and get off. A solidly twitchy athlete that can beat his man on the edge or slip inside. Strong at the point of attack and plays with good pad level and diagnosis skills. Tough with a good motor.

Projection: Manning is a guy that will be a solid player in the future. He is a program guy that needs to add 15-20 pounds to be able to do what he does in college. He is a pass rush move away from being an effective pass rusher. His motor and athleticism will make him a force in college.
