Manuel who plays high school ball in nearby Ocala at Vanguard is ranked as the #36 prospect in the nation according to the 247 composite rankings. He is also regarded as the #6 player in the state of Florida.
The 6’4, 200 lb wide out has previously been committed to both Tennessee and Miami, but found himself attending numerous Florida games this fall thanks to his comfort with the UF staff.
Manuel is high school teammates with a pair of UF 2021 commits, Trevonte Rucker and Bryce Langston and is the eighth commitment the Gators have picked up in the 2020 class.
