Lancaster wide receiver Omar Manning reaffirms TCU commitment

Posted January 16th, 2017


Omar Manning, a wide receiver out of Lancaster High School, officially closed his recruitment and reaffirmed his commitment to TCU Monday night via Twitter. The No. 23 player in the Fab 55 was strongly considering the Longhorns and was visited by Texas within the past week.

Damion Miller from John Tyler High School remains the lone wide receiver commit in Tom Herman’s 2017 class since Montrell Estell is expected to play defense. Herman wants to add at least one more wide receiver to the mix before national signing day.


Texas recently rejoined the race for Cedar Hill’s Charleston Rambo. The Oklahoma commit was visited by offensive coordinator Tim Beck last week. Oregon State commit Jamire Calvin and Winter Park (Fla.) prospect Jordan Pouncey are still targets who could take an official visit to Austin before finalizing a decision.
