Good afternoon, Coug fans! Last night brought an exciting wave of Ol’ Crimson, and today Joseph Manjack ( @JoseohManjack ) announced his commitment.

A wide receiver hailing from Tomball, Texas- stands tall at 6’3”. Big fella. My favorite fact I read about him, you ask? He also had an offer from Arizona AND Colorado.

He was a two sport athlete in high school, which speaks to not only his athleticism, but to his time management.

Let’s talk stats! He’s got 1,246 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns in the 2019 season, which are not numbers that make me upset. I quite enjoy those numbers. He’s also got 69 receptions, which is pretty swell too.

While he is a 3 star recruit, I checked out his Hudl, which every single time I find myself doing that I’m pleasantly reminded of my days in high school spent judging my friends attempts at making Hudl videos, and judging their background music.

That’s not the point, however. His video has no background music, and he’s clearly labeled in each shot. This, to me- a professional Hudl judge, shows that he means business.

Get excited and give him a warm Cougar welcome.

Also, sorry if I sound entirely brain dead, I guarantee it’s not my lack of enthusiasm! It’s very hot where I am, and my commute home from work is mostly biking! But nothing makes me feel better than a new recruit, and talking to you guys! Hope everyone had a great week.
