Leesburg’s T.J. Manuel No Longer Flying Under the Recruiting
Radar

LEESBURG - Leesburg High School’s T. J. Manuel (5-8, 155) is starting to get interest from FBS and
FCS schools this summer. Manuel had been flying under the recruiting radar; however, that has
changed after his performance in the spring game against Umatilla. Florida State University, Florida
Atlantic, Florida International, Stanford, Florida A&M University, University of Central Florida and
Bethune-Cookman University are showing interest in the junior running back.

Manuel is an excellent student/athlete that has scouts raving about his speed; as well as, his ability to
make people miss in the open field; equally important, he has added another explosive weapon to
Leesburg 1st year Head coach Mark Oates offense. Moreover, Manuel has impressed recruiters with
his ability to score from anywhere on the field.

“T.J. brings speed to our running and passing game,” Head Coach Mark Oates said in an interview
with the Carver Heights Quarterback Club. “He is getting looks from Florida Atlantic, Florida
International and Stanford.”

“The kid has a 4.3 GPA and runs a 4.43 40. It’s easy to promote a Student/Athlete like this."

By and large, the future is bright for Manuel in the classroom and on the football field.
