DawgFamily? Nation’s No. 7 CB Dontae Manning details his long-time interest in UGA

Want to attack every day with the latest UGA football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel brings. This offering is a chance to get to know senior CB target, Dontae Manning. There’s a lot to this young man aside from an abiding interest in playing for UGA. 

Dontae Manning has made a lot of “OMG” plays for his Raytown High (Kansas City, Mo.) football team. He plans to take an “OV” to UGA in December. Georgia coach Kirby Smart has even compared him to a current NFL star.

OMG. OV. UGA. NFL.

There’s an even better set of initials out there that shows what the nation’s No. 7 cornerback prospect (247Sports Composite) might mean to even the nation’s most elite programs.

LLB.

Long. Live. Brent. 

That “LLB” has meant something to Manning and his Raytown Bluejay community. It still means a lot.

Brent Kuhnhenn passed this month after a long fight with cancer. He was the father-in-law of the head coach at Raytown. His trial with his illness sparked a “BrentStrong” movement within that community. Kuhnhenn’s fight led to more than earrings with a logo for his cancer fight. It sparked hashtags, helmet stickers and even widespread T-shirt sales around Raytown.

It also inspired an Under Armour All-American with blistering speed and playmaking ability.
