BC interested in 2012 Guard

As a Rivals top 135 player in the class of 2012, Charles Mann is one of the top players in the country. Although Mann plays for one of the best AAU teams in the country, basketball wasn't always so smooth for the junior.

"I went from being a nobody to being put on the map," Mann stated. "I got with the right AAU team, the Southern Kings, and had an outstanding summer. We made it to Nike Peach Jam. I played with a lot of good talent on the team, which boosted my game." By the end of the summer, Mann had turned a lot of heads and continues to work hard at his game.

A 6'5 combo guard from Georgia, Mann is primarily a point guard who can score the ball. He attacks the rim at will like a slasher and dishes the rock around like a point guard should. While his jump shot wasn't too astouding last year, he has improved it in a major way over the past twelve months. Mann needs to get quicker, especially with his feet, for him to become an elite player.

Although the state of Georgia is stacked with talent for the class of 2012 with players like Tony Parker, Jordan Adams and Jordan Price, the junior combo guard is trying to make a name for himself.

Charles has seen his recruitment grow recently as he has offers from Nevada, New Mexico State, Georgia State, Georgia Southern, Jacksonville and Stetson. Along with those offers, he is drawing "major interest" from Auburn, Clemson, Nebraska, UCF, Stanford, Western Kentucky and Boston College. With "no favorites" yet, look for a college decision to be made next year.

One of the schools, Boston College, is showing a fair amount of interest in Charles Mann and he is interested in them, as well. "I think I would be a good fit at Boston College," he said of the Eagles. "I've kind of wanted to play in the ACC and they really like me." At this point, the Eagles staff has yet to offer him a scholarship.

Although Charles Mann is not a household name yet, he is developing into an impact player for the Southern Kings and Union Grove, his high school.
