The offers are rolling in for Eagle HS QB Tanner Mangum (Eagle, ID) as the talented signal-caller…
Three New Offers For Tanner Mangum
"I got offers from BYU, Arkansas, and Utah," he said. "I got the BYU offer on February 1st, Utah on February 2nd, and Arkansas on January 27th," he added.
The offer from BYU is big due to Mangum's family connections at the school. Head Coach Bronco Mendenhall offered Tanner over the phone and the talented QB describes it as a "big honor."
"It was nice to get that offer on the table and talk to Coach Mendenhall. It meant a lot to get that offer with my family going there and it's a big honor to be wanted by them," he said. "You know, Coach Mendenhall is a real cool, quiet, just a stoic leader. He's just real professional about everything."
The offer from Utah wasn't much of a surprise, but Mangum says the offer from Arkansas "came out of the blue."
"I had a cousin that played at Utah and Norm Chow is a top Offensive Coordinator. Going to the Pac-12 means a lot of good competition, so it would be cool to play there too," Mangum said. "Arkansas just came out of the blue. One of our coaches has some connections down there, so that's how I got it. It's cool since they're a big-time SEC program."
Boise State extended an offer to Mangum back in September and have been recruiting him hard ever since.
"I spoke to Coach Petersen last Thursday," he stated. "He talked a lot about the 2011 class and how they're excited about 2012. He said he'd love to have me a year from now and have me help continue the program's success. Coach Pete is just a real good guy and someone I could see myself playing for."
The camp circuit will heat up in just a few months and Tanner says this summer might just be his busiest ever.
"It's going to be a busy summer, but I'm doing what I love to do," he said. "I'm going to Cal for the Elite 11 and the Stanford Nike Camp as well. We'll be going to Utah and Nevada for our team camp. Personally, I'll also be going to Boise State and BYU."
As a junior, Mangum (6'3, 182) had 874 yards passing and 10 TDs in an injury-shortened season.
