What it means – The curious saga of Manuel’s recruitment comes to an end with a signing day flip. Despite questions surrounding his work ethic, Manuel is a player that has 5-star abilities. A combination of speed, power, and technique makes him a huge get for Florida State — who flipped him from the rival Florida Gators.

Will he play next season? – About a 50/50 shot. Florida State returns Demarcus Christmas and Derrick Nnadi, and has players like Arthur Williams and Darvin Taylor II behind them. If Manuel puts the work in and capitalize on his potential early, he could find himself in the rotation.
