Will Mangum adds SIUE offer

Thursday morning Will Mangum (TN) added an offer from SIUE Cougars staff.

Last spring Will Mangum added a UMKC offer.  The 6-foot-8 forward possesses a threatening game.  He plays very well face-up and looks like a hulking wing more than a traditional power forward.  Tennessee Prep Academy will start Mangum again this season.  Expect him to play as a second big man.

If signed ultimately by the Cougars, SIUE would probably elect to line up Will Mangum like Tennessee Tech used Ryan Martin (2016) by ostensibly lining him up as a big, but then pulling Mangum’s defender away from the basket for mismatches.

According to Tennessee Prep Head Coach Harold Rayford, Mangum’s recruitment at large is a week away from blowing up.  SIUE will not be his last offer and look for several other OVC schools to get involved on a deeper level very soon.
