Tennessee landed a big time commitment for the 2020 class over the weekend. Leonard Manuel — a 6-4 205 pound rising sophomore receiver — has pledged his commitment to Tennessee. He announced his decision in a tweet on Sunday.
2020 is obviously two recruiting cycles out, so things could change here. However, Manuel is thought to be one of the best receivers from that particular class, though he hasn’t been rated.
Auburn, Florida, Miami, Georgia, Florida State, West Virginia and Michigan are just a few of the schools that are gunning for the services of Manuel. He’s from Ocala, Florida, so expect those Florida schools to stay hot after Manuel despite his commitment.
Tennessee is off to a fantastic start on their 2018 class, so adding a big time prospect like Manuel to the early 2020 class can only grow the positive momentum Butch Jones has going so far on the trail.
