Griz Recruiting: Devon Manning


devon2In my effort to update some players on the recruiting list, I am updating some information on Devon Manning.

The Griz were recruiting Manning pretty hard in 2007-08, along with quite a few other D-1 programs. Manning was a high scoring (23+ points a game) 6-1 point guard out of Pueblo Colorado who was considered to be the best point guard in the state in 2008. It was reported that he had over 15 offers from the likes of Montana, Washington State, Colorado State, Wyoming, and was considered to one of the best point prospects on the west coast. Despite this and a reported 3.5 GPA he had to go the JC route.

Here is what ESPN had to say about Manning.

Manning is a heady point guard prospect for the mid major level. He has a solid looking frame with fairly long arms and overall decent length. He has sufficient quickness and speed, however, he lacks that second gear to blow by his defender. Furthermore, he has all the savvy to lead a team as he makes very good decisions almost every possession and he rarely turns the ball over. He is a true point guard that sets up his teammates, however, he can also finish in the paint area well, particularly with his left hand. His jump shot is solid, but he gets very little lift on it and it has a slow release. Manning is a solid point guard prospect for the division one level, but he lacks the elite athleticism to be mentioned among the best at his position.

Rating – 68

Manning attended Trinidad JC in Trinidad Colorado this past season and averaged 3 points and 2 assists a game. His recruitment has dropped of a bit since last year, and he will need to have a good 2009-10 season to pick it up. I have heard the Griz coaches had a pretty good relationship with Manning, but whether they will need a JC point next year is up in the air.
