RECRUITING: Crosby’s Mannie Netherly commits to LSU

On Friday, Netherly closed his recruitment for the final time – the 6-foot-2, 172-pound wide receiver picking LSU.

HOUSTON – After taking a step back to reconsider his choice of school earlier this spring, Crosby’s Mannie Netherly had a decision to make.

Announcing his Top 6, including Florida, Texas, Alabama, Auburn, Texas A&M and LSU earlier this month Netherly took visits to Alabama, A&M and LSU during that span since.

On Friday, Netherly closed his recruitment for the final time – the 6-foot-2, 172-pound wide receiver picking LSU.

“I choose LSU because it was a great place for me,” Netherly said in a message to TexanLive.com. “Playing in Death Valley will be an amazing experience.”

 

Netherly is coming of a standout junior campaign, reeling in 61 passes for 1,068 yards and 18 touchdowns for the Cougars.

In 2016, Netherly is expected to shift over to the quarterback position to fill in for Texas Lutheran quarterback Tristen Cotton.

Heading to LSU Netherly will be looked at as a top target in Les Miles’ offense.

Miles, who enters his 12th season at the helm of the Tigers, enters this season with a 112-32 overall record, two SEC Championships under his belt and also winning the 2007 BCS National Championship with a 38-24 win against Ohio State.

“Playing for Les Miles will be fun,” Netherly said in a message to TexanLive.com. “Coach Miles is a players coach he loves his players and is a amazing coach, so playing for him will be special.”
