Louisville and Georgia Tech are the leaders for Josh Manley, the defensive end from Milton High School.
The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder will be one of the featured prospects in tonight’s “Thursday Night Football” at 7 p.m. It will be televised live on WSB-TV digital channel 2.2, with the replay shown on Channel 2 on Friday night at 1:05 a.m. You can also watch it at www.wsbtv.com
“I don’t have a clear-cut leader but I’m looking at Louisville and Georgia Tech as the top two right now,” Manley told the AJC. “Louisville is a good school with good coaches, and they are very much education first. I like that.
“It’s the same thing with Georgia Tech as Louisville. The coaches are great, and they are very upfront with me about everything.”
Manley is a lifelong Georgia Tech fan who has a Yellow Jackets No. 42 jersey in his closet.
“Georgia Tech was one of the first to offer. That was a while ago. I have not been to any games this year, sadly. I would love to go, but I work the sideline chains at my little brother’s football games on Saturdays.”
Milton coach Howie DeCristofaro on Manley: “He runs real well, he’s physical and he’s smart. When you’re recruiting at the collegiate level, this is the kind of character you’re looking for. He’s a great kid with great character. He’s got it all.”
