"I got to talk with coach Patterson, and he was talking about how TCU needed to recruit more big bodies for the Big 12. He said they needed to get more big recruits," Manning said.
TCU has officially offered the defensive tackle who now holds over seven offers from several high major programs.
Manning said that he does not have an official list yet, but he said he was impressed with all that TCU has to offer.
"I don't really have an official list yet," Manning said. "I am just keeping an open mind."
Manning says that TCU really liked his size and physical body on the defensive line. He is listed at 6'2 and 275 pounds.
Manning will take part in the University of Texas' junior day tomorrow.
