Manning is 6-6 and 185 pounds and the son of former NBA power forward Rich Manning. While Manning is a two sports star, he is expect to chose baseball over basketball.

Manning has a fastball in the mid-90s, as well as a power curve and a developing changeup.

He has committed to Loyola Marymount for college.
