LB Terrell Manning Profile

6-2, 205 pound linebacker prospect Terrell Manning visited Clemson on Saturday.

"It went great," he said. "It went really great. I went down with my father and my cousin. They basically covered everything. They showed us everything about football. They told us about the academics. My dad loved it also."

What did Manning like best about the visit?

"I liked the academic center the best. That was very impressive," replied Manning.

Manning also made a visit to North Carolina State over the weekend.

"I visited North Carolina State on Sunday," he said. "It was pretty cool. I have been over there before. I went for their junior day. I talked to head coach and a few others that I didn't meet when I went up for an unofficial visit."

The North Carolina standout already has a very impressive offer list.

"I have offers from North Carolina, South Carolina, North Carolina State, East Carolina, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee and Alabama. I am also hearing from Virginia, Wake Forest, Miami, Ole Miss and Auburn," said Manning.

When asked about his current favorites, Manning responded, "I don't have any yet."

Two former Scotland County teammates signed with South Carolina last month. Does that give the Gamecocks an advantage?

"I wouldn't mind playing with them, but it won't have any impact on where I go. I want to go to the place that fits me the best," replied Manning.

Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier is recruiting Manning for the Tigers.

"That is a cool cat right there. He is my man," stated Manning.

What are the strengths of the talented linebacker?

"I can run down anyone trying to get around the perimeter. I have speed to get to the edge. I am also an aggressor. I have big hands and I am fast getting to the ball," replied Manning.

The summer camp plans are not clear at this point.

"At first I was telling people I would try to make it. Now I will sit back and see where I can make it. I don't know yet."

The prize recruit would like to have a decision before the fall.

"I am hoping I will have it before the football season starts," he added. "I want to get it out of the way."
