Eagle HS QB Tanner Mangum (Eagle, ID) is likely the top prospect in the State of Idaho as we switch…
Another Offer For Tanner Mangum
"I got an offer from Oregon State," he said. "Well, my Offensive Coordinator was speaking at a conference in Seattle and he's good friends with Coach Ross. He said they had heard about me and that I could add Oregon State to the list. I haven't had much personal contact with them, but they've been watching my film."
The recruiting "environment" can be a stressful one, but the talented QB is just enjoying the process. He says it's all about having the right attitude and enjoying it for what it is, a lifelong dream being realized.
"I'm just taking it easy and enjoying the process," he stated. "I've been dreaming about this since I was a kid. You know, football is supposed to be fun. You just got to keep the right attitude."
Brent Pease will takeover the play-calling duties in 2011 as Boise State's new Offensive Coordinator. It's early, but Mangum says the two are building a solid relationship.
"Me and Coach Pease stay in touch about once a week. It's been great getting to know him," he said. "I talked to him a few times before, but that was back when he was coaching WRs. He's someone I could see myself playing for and I can tell he knows what he's doing."
One might wonder why Tanner Mangum is such a hot commodity. Simply put, it's all about pass efficiency and decision making.
"A lot of it is pass efficiency," he said. "You look at Kellen Moore and see that he set the record for pass efficiency. They like that I can make the right throws at the right time. You make accurate throws, don't be too greedy, and take what the defense gives you. That's what they like."
Mangum is keeping his options open right now. Having said that, he says he'll probably start trimming his list over the next few months. For now, he's just enjoying the process.
"It's something I'll talk to my parents about," he said. "I'm keeping my options open for now. I'll narrow it down here and there, but I'm just enjoying the process."
As a junior, Mangum (6'3, 182) had 874 yards passing and 10 TDs during an injury shortened season.
