Cornerback Korey Mangum is a physical cornerback who turned heads at the Army All-American practices in addition to his new position coach.
"Korey made the most of
his opportunities out there in San Antonio, sticking with the wideouts and
showing that he, too, has game. Mangum looked very good in coverage," Scout.com
Recruiting Analyst Stacey Dean said.
The Texas defensive back
even got praise from his fellow All-Star teammates.
"He's a lot better than I expected," five-star tight end Martellus Bennett said.
"He definitely deserves to be here."
"He's a guy played solid football all year," Seminole Defensive Coordinator
Mickey Andrews said. "He also played well in Army All-Star game. He's a guy
that likes to get up there and play bump and run. He's a physical player who is
a good tackler. That's the thing offenses are making corners do just now
especially with blocking out safeties. If corners can't make tackles, then you
got problems. I think he's a guy that will help us out."
Mangum finished his junior
season with 76 tackles, six picks, two fumbles caused and two fumble recoveries.
Mangum can bench 285 pounds, squats 445 and he has a 34-inch vertical jump.
Mangum will also be joined
by two of his La Marque teammates in Russell Ball and Clarence Ward.
