Trevor Manuel Returns To Michigan

25 Aug

812196After a Summer which saw eight high school players leave the state to pursue their playing careers elsewhere, Michigan finally received an incoming transfer of their own, and one making a return to the Great Lake State in 6’9″ power forward Trevor Manuel.

Manuel, the 89th overall prospect in the upcoming senior class according to 247 Sports, began his high school career at Lansing Sexton, and under head coach Carolton Valentine captured a Class B state title his freshman campaign, and during his sophomore year cemented himself as one of Michigan promising forward prospects averaging 12 points and nine rebounds a game.  Although he will return to Lansing, he will not attend Sexton.  Instead, he will play for cross-town rival Everett, along with three cousins of Manuel who already play for the Vikings.

Trevor decided to attend the athletic powerhouse Oak Hill Academy in the Mouth of Washington, Virginia for his junior campaign, whose alumni range from NBA All-Stars Rajon Rondo and Carmelo Anthony.  But he would later return to Michigan for the AAU campaign, competing for Nike’s The Family of the EYBL Circuit.

Perhaps Manuel’s move to return to the Lansing area indicates the possibility of potentially committing to the Spartans of Michigan State, one of his biggest suitors since Trevor started high school.  Manuel currently has double-digit division one scholarships to continue his career at the college level, including in addition to Michigan State Oregon, Kansas State, North Carolina State, Florida State, and Xavier just to name a few.
