McManus Sticks with Mountaineers
It was rumored yesterday that OSU may get in late with Baltimore (MD) Dunbar star WR Deontay McManus, but rumors was all it was. McManus announced moments ago at Dunbar that he has signed with the Mountaineers, sticking with the verbal pledge he made last year.
McManus's name has been connected to Ohio State for some time, but the receiver never took an official visit to Columbus and the Buckeyes appeared to never seriously be in the running. With Frank Epitropoulos, Ricquan Southward, Mike Thomas, and possibly Stefon Diggs or Davonte Neal in the fold, the need at receiver isn't great, so don't fret too much over this one.
Best of luck to Deontay at WVU. Stay tuned to 11W for more updates as NSD coverage continues.
