  • Manny Covey 2023 Bradford HS Starke FL RB Commit

    The staff has been after Covey for a while. Pure athlete at 6'0 185. Probably need to add weight for college but we can fix that. For some reason the recruiting services didn't rate (didn't see him?) but don't freak out because he's the real deal and had several P5 offers. We beat ISU and Minn for him. He still had visits scheduled for the next two weekend at those schools. It' still an unknown whether he will cancel them.

      IS this a real concern? We don't and shouldn't lose commits to the likes of IU.
      Red and Black are more of an Attitude than merely a color combination.

      Intimidate! Dominate! Celebrate!

        Well, It's certainly not the first time someone has offered a commit of ours. We've done it to others as well.

        I think the issue whether he can get playing time here vs. IU because to be to be honest IU hasn't accomplished much in football since since the 50s Rose Bowl and later with Antwan Randle El and probably won't as long as they're in the current makeup of the Big 10. I thought they had a real shot to do so last year and that fell apart on them completely.

        IMO, Covey would be better served by honoring his commitment and competing here rather than going to IU. In this era, if you don't succeed, the transfer portal is available later. We're the better program right now and we've proved it on the field head to head.
