Manning will visit Nebraska

There is a clear effort by Nebraska to make sure that some additional defensive back recruits are coming to Lincoln in the coming weeks for official visits. Nebraska has circled back around with a player who has had an offer for a while now and despite being listed as a "solid verbal" to another school he is going to set up an official visit to Lincoln.

There is definitely a need for secondary recruits in the 2011-12 class for Nebraska. The Husker staff offered Donaldven Manning from Miami (Flor.) Central a while ago according to him.

"I have had an offer from Nebraska for a while," Manning said. "I don't have the official letter that says that I have an offer, but my coach says that he has it."

Manning isn't sure how long he's had the offer, but he says that he will be taking an official visit to Nebraska. He has lost touch with the Nebraska staff recently after losing his phone, but he plans on getting back in touch with them to set up a visit.

"I have had it for a while now, but I just recently started to talk to Nebraska and with my coach about taking a visit to Nebraska. I have no idea which weekend I will be going out there.

"I really haven't been in all that much contact with Coach Corey Raymond lately. I lost my phone initially and since getting a new one I haven't been in touch with him."

Manning committed to Virginia Tech back in February, but continues to keep some schools in play. Along with Nebraska, Notre Dame recently hosted Manning in late October.
