Only nine programs remain in the mix with Detroit (Mi.) Cass Technical athlete Jaren Mangham, and Texas, TCU, and Kansas are each among that bunch. Oregon, Colorado, Michigan State, Arkansas, Texas A&M, and Tennessee were also named in Mangham’s top nine on Monday.

Florida, Minnesota, West Virginia, Missouri, Ole Miss, Florida State, and Kentucky were named in Mangham’s top 16 on April 18, but missed the cut this time around.
A 4-star prospect with 47 offers, the Michigan native is days away from an official visit to Colorado, which will be his first official trip. Mangham has also toured Texas, TCU, Michigan State and Texas A&M on an unofficial basis this offseason.
Of the teams still standing in Mangham’s recruitment, Michigan State is considered the heavy favorite, owning 89 percent of his Crystal Ball projections.
A versatile talent who plays running back and linebacker, Mangham is ranked as the nation’s No. 345 player, the No. 30 athlete and as the No. 9 player in Michigan, per the 247Sports composite.
