Michigan Football: Notes on Roy Manning
I can remember when Manning was recruited by Coach Carr and almost every poster on almost every board was very negative. He was not a highly rated high school player, but what people did not know at the time was Manning was the leader of his high school program in Saginaw (a program at the time with many division 1 prospects).
He organized all the off-season workouts, even ran the early morning weight sessions before school, in which at the time, even his high school coach stated he was amazed at Manning’s ability to get some “troubled” kids to attend on a regular basis.
When he was a player at Michigan, he consistently played ahead of players rated ahead of him and was considered one of the best “student-athletes” Coach Carr had during his tenure.
Manning (IMO) is a Head Coach material (down the road). He is one of those young, upcoming coaches who has the ability to not only recruit, but is able to motivate players (maybe better than any coach on our current staff), and teach. He has a passion to coaching football, I look at him as a future star in the profession.
I will make this prediction, Cornerback coaching will NOT be the biggest concern on the 2014 team.
I will putting up a pre-spring report this weekend, to discuss how some of the players have done in off-season or hopefully will participate in Chat this Monday.
