The 2014 Boise State Junior Day has been a huge success for the Broncos, landing not only their QB…
Is Boise The Team To Beat For Kyler Manu?
"I've always wanted to play for Boise," said the 6'2", 200-pound Manu, who plans on making his verbal commitment before his senior season. Other schools recruiting him are Utah State, Idaho and Washington. "Growing up in this area, it's what every kid wants to do. I love it.
"My dad and brothers love Boise State. My family has always loved it. We go to a bunch of games. My dad has known Coach (Marcel) Yates for a long time. We love the whole staff."
Manu has been on the Boise radar since his sophomore season and received his official offer from the school following the October 10 win over Nevada that he attended. Despite coach Chris Peterson's departure to Washington, coach Bryan Harsin retained Manu's offer.
Manu's 92 tackles earned him some accolades while helping lead his team to an appearance in the 5A championship game. Manu was named 1st Team All-State, 1st Team All-District and District Defensive Player of the Year. With a nose for the football and a quick first step, he consistently finds himself around the ball.
He's looking to improve his 4.7 40-yard-dash time during the offseason and has already been told he'll probably need to put on some weight for a possible move to inside linebacker at the next level. On Manu's agenda this summer is the Nike Football Training Camp in Eugene, Oregon on June 8, the Boise football camp on June 13-14, and the Washington camp June 20-21.
Though Manu developed a relationship with Coach Peterson – and hasn't made his final decision just yet – he's leaning heavily toward his childhood team. The only one his family loves.
"I have cousins who live in Boise, my aunt and uncle live there," Manu said. "My grandparents live there, too. I would love for my family to be able to watch my games. It would mean a lot to me."
