We have a few updates on Mountain View (Calif.) St. Francis four-star defensive tackle Tyler Manoa. Manoa, a 6’ 5”, 294 pound defensive tackle was previously a BYU commit in the spring. He originally planning to announce his commitment at the Polynesian Bowl on Jan. 20, but he has decided to push back his decision until Jan. 31. He also released a top three of the Oregon Ducks, UCLA Bruins, and Utah Utes on his Twitter account.
Manoa also included his final official visit schedule in his Tweet. He will be visiting Oregon Jan. 12-14 and Utah Jan. 26-28 (Manoa previously visited UCLA back in October when Jim Mora was still the coach at UCLA). This means Utah will get the final visit before Manoa, a U.S. Army All-American, announces his college choice on Jan. 31. Manoa is definitely one to watch for Utah fans. He is a big-time talent and would be a huge addition to the Utah defensive line if he came to Salt Lake City.
