"I'm not looking to do any interviews right now," Manley said. "I'm looking forward to getting a chance to get on the field and earn my degree.

"I am happy to be closer to home and I don't want to talk about the transferring. It's a new chapter and I just can't wait to start it next semester. I'm going to work hard like always."
