WVU 4-Star Athlete Target Jaden Mangham Postpones Decision Date



After losing internet and air conditioning at his family home Sunday, West Virginia target Jaden Mangham has delayed his decision date to focus on the more important things in life. He has not yet announced a new decision date.

Mangham, a four-star athlete from Wylie E. Groves in Franklin, Michigan, was set to announce his decision Sunday afternoon, with Nebraska, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Georgia Tech and WVU as his finalists.

A highly recruited prospect out of Wylie E. Groves, playing both wide receiver (25 catches for 453 yards and eight touchdowns) and cornerback last season, Mangham received 36 offers coming out of high school. With visits to WVU, Georgia Tech, Illinois and Nebraska, he’s been able to narrow down his extensive list to just six contenders.

Mangham (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) was able to visit Morgantown on June 4 and spend some time with a few recruits who have already committed to WVU, including three-star safety Mumu Bin-Wahad, four-star cornerback Jacolby Spells and three-star athlete Christion Stokes.

Stokes, in particular, has been a key factor in Mangham potentially coming to WVU, the pairs’ shared Detroit bond has been on full display.

According to 247Sports, Mangham is one of the Top 300 recruits in the cycle. He’s the 286th-ranked recruit in the cycle, one of the highest WVU can land this cycle. 247Sports rates him as the 15th-ranked athlete and the seventh-ranked player from Michigan. Rivals rates him as the 19th-ranked athlete while maintaining that seventh-ranked status in Michigan.

Both 247Sports and Rivals currently project Mangham to land with WVU. 247Sports and Rivals have had four experts each project him to land with the Mountaineers.

Landing Mangham would be another huge victory for WVU head coach Neal Brown’s excellent recruiting class. After landing four-star wide receiver Kevin Thomas last week, another four-star recruit would really bolster the class — with potentially more on the way.
