Decision for Manley could be in spring

Bowling Green's Joe Manley is listed as one of Kentucky's best players for the 2012 class. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman holds offers from Kentucky, Louisville and Western Kentucky at this stage, but a couple of other schools are now getting involved.

Bowling Green's Joe Manley is listed as one of Kentucky's best players for the 2012 class. The 6-foot-6, 300-pound lineman holds offers from Kentucky, Louisville and Western Kentucky at this stage, but a couple of other schools are now getting involved.

"North Carolina State and Illinois are recruiting me now," Manley said.

The junior hasn't gotten an offer from those schools yet, but he has recently taken a visit and has a few more planned for the future.

"Well I visited Western Kentucky this past weekend and I'm going up to Kentucky this weekend," he said. "I'm unofficially visiting Louisville, Georgia, Auburn and Notre Dame," he said.

Right now, Manley is aware of his options, but he's not completely focused on making a college decision at this point.

"(Recruiting) is going good, but I'm more concentrated on the winter program to get better for next year than picking a school," he said. "I'm not ready to make a decision yet. Mostly likely it will be the spring recruiting period when I make my decision," he finished.
