2015 Boise State football recruiting: Three-star LB Kyler Manu verbally commits

Brian Losness-US PRESSWIRE

Boise State earned a verbal commit from local three-star prospect in linebacker Kyler Manu.

Boise State's junior day this weekend yielded great results with two recruits verbally committing to play for the Broncos. First there was four-star quarterback Brett Rypien and now there is three-star linebacker Kyler Manu. Manu is a local product out of Pocatello, Idaho, who was on the radar of the former Boise State staff, and was still a priority once Bryan Harsin took over for Chris Petersen.

The linebacker measures in at 6'2" and 200 pounds and Manu had great junior year as he helped lead Highland to the state championship game where they came up short. Manu racked up the awards as he was one of the best players in all of Idaho as he earned first team All-State and All-District honors. He also piled up 92 tackles, including 4.5 for a loss, three interceptions and forced a pair of fumbles; those numbers were good enough to have Manu also earn defensive player of the year for his district.

On a larger scale, Manu is the third best player in the state of Idaho and is 74th outside linebacker in the nation. Boise State was leaning Boise State for awhile and the only other school to show interest was the Washington Huskies, and that comes as no surprise as Petersen wanted Manu when he was the head coach at Boise State.
