3-Star Ohio Linebacker Mani Powell Will Announce Commitment Friday Afternoon



The next West Virginia commit could be announcing his commitment tomorrow afternoon.

3-star linebacker Mani Powell from McKinley High School in Canton, Ohio announced on Twitter Thursday afternoon that he will be committing Friday, June 4th at 4:00 PM on a live call with Lucas Live Media.

Powell (6-foot-3, 225 pounds) has picked up offers from WVU, Akron, Arkansas, Boston College, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Coastal Carolina, Indiana, Kent State, Kentucky, Liberty, Marshall, Michigan, Ole Miss, Syracuse, Western Michigan and Youngstown State.

A Top 6 featuring Arkansas, WVU, Toledo, Syracuse, Michigan and Indiana has been narrowed down, and despite a lack of visit to WVU, Powell obviously has the Mountaineers firmly in the running — even if they aren’t at the top of the list.

According to Rivals, Powell is expected to commit to Arkansas. Rivals has him rated as the 29th-ranked recruit from Ohio while 247Sports rates him as the 27th-ranked player from Ohio and the 112th-ranked linebacker in the cycle.
