"The Minnesota offer came last week and it came out of nowhere," Manns stated. "One of my good friends, Brennan Armstrong, just committed there and I'm excited for him. It's cool to know we could be playing together one day. Minnesota is a big offer to me for sure."
"I'm going to visit Minnesota over my spring break, and I'm excited to get up there and meet with the coaches," he added. "I'm being recruited by Coach (Ed) Warinner, and he's a great guy. Minnesota and Wisconsin are both way up there for me, along with Penn State."
"The Wisconsin offer just came today (Wednesday), but we have been talking and forming that relationship," he added. "This is a huge offer to me and my family, and we are talking now about getting to Madison for a visit also. I know they have a great program and play for the Big Ten championship almost every year."
