Over the past two days, a WVU basketball coach has been scouting on of the top recruits in the 2022 class.

According to Corey Evans on Twitter, WVU and Virginia have both sent assistant coaches to look at First Love Christian Academy sophomore Mason Manning.

Manning, a guard, transferred to First Love after playing at Murrah High School in Jackson, Mississippi. Manning chose First Love over St. Benedictine’s and Oakhill Academy according to First Love assistant coach Jeremy Grubbs.

Manning has been ranked as a three-star prospect and as high as 31 in the 2022 recruiting class. Grubbs said Manning’s skills are advanced beyond his years.

“He’s extremely skilled with the ball, he has a slick handle and can shoot it at a high level,” Grubbs said. “His decision making is way beyond his years. ”

Manning will play both guard positions this season for First Love. Grubbs said that he has received attention from Ole Miss, LSU, Baylor, Virginia and WVU so far this year. He expects many more colleges to show interest when the season starts, through the November signing period.

Grubbs said Manning needs to work on getting stronger, playing more consistently and improve defensively as his high school career progresses.
