Scott County sits at 21-5 after an outstanding regular season has completed. Junior wing Tamron Manning has set the pace for the Cardinals this year.

Tamron Manning picked up several scholarship offers before his junior season began and now sits on five offers currently from Marshall, Ohio, Akron, James Madison and Eastern Kentucky, but his recruitment hasn't ended there.

"Schools that are on me hard right now are Missouri, Alabama, Dayton, Florida State, LSU, Virginia Tech, Ohio, Xavier and Cincinnati," he said.

With those schools taking a hard look, Manning plans to take his time rather than making a hasty decision about which college to attend.

"I have no real time-table on when I'll make a decision. I ‘m just really seeing what happens and just whenever I feel comfortable," he continued.

With that decision likely several months away, Manning is focusing on carrying Scott County to the Sweet 16 and ultimately a state championship.

"We are playing really well headed into tournament play. We have clinched a number one seed in district (42) so we are just looking forward to that," he continued.

Manning has had a good season, averaging almost 17 points per game and improving not only on his physical tools for the game, but the mental part.

"My season is going good. I really feel I've developed as a leader," he said. "My three-point shot has become a lot more consistent, which has made me hard to guard," he said. "I want to get better every day," he finished.
