Breaking Down Wynton McManis

Mississippi Scout
Posted Jul 19, 2011

The Olive Branch linebacker checked into the Ole Miss camp at 6' 1", 200. To learn more about the Memphis commit's performance at the Elite Camp, read below.

Name: Wynton McManis
Olive Branch (Miss)
6' 1", 200
Committed to Memphis Ranking: Not Ranked live evaluation: Wynton went against some of the South's top athletes in one-on-one drills at the Ole Miss Elite Camp. The first thing that sticks out to us about Wynton is how competitive he is during each drill. He plays to the whistle on each and every play. McManis plays outside linebacker for Olive Branch but has also played a lot of safety for Coach Scott Samsel. We believe linebacker will be his best spot on the next level.

Wynton checked in at 6' 1", 200 and ran a 4.88 forty. He showed pretty good lateral movement as he ran a very respectable 4.56 short shuttle and a 31" vertical. The explosion is there but he will need to keep getting quicker and work on his top speed so he does not get exposed in spaces on the next level.
