As surprising as this was, it actually makes total sense. A majority of us thought he should’ve gotten more minutes. Why would he want to stay at a school that isn’t giving him the minutes he deserves? Best of luck to him. GB’s bigs have absolutely no size now.
I saw on Manny's twitter page that he has an offer from Northern Illinois
If we say Northern Ill. is similar in stature to GB, then what would be the reason for leaving? If he went to Wisconsin, I say yea go for it if you can do it. To me this suggests some issues with playing time, system etc. 6'8" dudes are hard to come by so I hate losing him.

I doubt Manny thought he was going to end up at a high major. He was looking for a fresh start and an opportunity to play somewhere where he can start and get more minutes. Our coaching staff has had a hard time trusting him for whatever reason. I hope he ends up having a solid final year somewhere. I do not want to see him play GB so SEMO is the favorite so far for me.
