Dontae Manning, nation’s No. 3 cornerback, commits to Oregon Ducks
The Oregon Ducks football program is experiencing unbelievable highs right now. Just a day after winning the Rose Bowl over Wisconsin, Mario Cristobal and the Ducks landed a commitment from nation’s No. 3 cornerback, Dontae Manning. Manning chose the Ducks over fellow finalists Arizona State, Georgia, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.
The 6-foot, 185-pound cornerback, out of Raytown High School (Kansas City, Missouri) is rated the nation’s No. 30 overall prospect by 247Sports and No. 23 by ESPN, and is the highest-rated defensive back in program history.
With Manning in the fold, Oregon’s 2020 recruiting class jumps from No. 18 nationally to No. 12 on 247Sports, as well as grabbing No. 1 spot in the Pac-12 Conference rankings for the second consecutive year, an accomplishment the Ducks had never accomplished prior to Mario Cristobal’s promotion to head coach.
Oregon is on the cusp of greatness, it’s sure going to be fun to watch.
