Four-star wide receiver Mannie Netherly was supposed to head to Texas A&M. That changed when quarterback recruit Tate Martell backed off his commitment.
That did not sit well with Texas A&M, leading wide receiver coach Aaron Moorehead to send a tweet about valuing loyalty earlier this month. That was one of the reasons Netherly gave for decommitting himself. The rising senior was reopening his recruitment.
It is still unclear where Netherly will end up, but his tweets this weekend may have given a small clue.
While attending Alabama early enrollee Jalen Hurts’ graduation, Netherly sent a tweet, which has since been deleted, that would seem to suggest Alabama is somewhere near the top of his list.
The tweet read, “Congratulations to my big bro and my future QB,” and it bore the hashtag #RollTide. Netherly told Hank South of BamaOnLine the tweet is not meant as a commitment. It may mean nothing.
The No. 27 wide receiver recruit in the nation, according to 247Sports, is currently predicted to choose LSU. But Alabama is in the running, along with Texas. There still seems to be a lot for Netherly to decide now that his recruiting is open again.
