WR Omar Manning in Action to Start Season

Aug. 9 -- Scout provides season-opening practice clips of top 100 prospect Omar Manning, the No. 1 receiver in the state of Texas...

The above video features season-opening "Midnight Madness" practice clips of 2017 four-star receiver Omar Manning, Scout's No. 1 wideout in the Lone Star State.

Manning looked great in the first practice of the 2016 campaign. He appears to have improved his fluidity and short-area agility, showing good foot quickness in receiver drills.

After visiting programs such as OklahomaTexasTCU, and Texas A&M during the offseason, Manning told Scout that he has few schools he's focused on. For a full update with Manning, check out this story: No. 1 Receiver in Texas Nearing Decision?


The 6-foot-3, 203-pound Manning is primed for a big senior season after a breakout 2015 campaign that saw him catch 33 passes for 671 yards and a team-leading 12 touchdowns on more than 20 yards per reception.

Manning will team with fellow 2017 playmaker Cartrell Thomas to give Lancaster High School, a talent-laden Texas Class 5A program just south of Dallas, one of the top receiver duos in the Lone Star State.

In addition to his No. 1 ranking in Texas, Manning is No. 9 nationally at his position and the No. 72 overall prospect in the 2017 Scout 300.

Stick with Scout as we continue to monitor any developments in Manning's recruitment.
