Solomon Mangham is a 6’6″ SF from Georgia in the class of 2013 who has a long list of colleges that are in contact with him, and more are added to the list every day. We caught up with Solomon for this edition of 7 Questions.
You have a long list of interested colleges and an offer from Houston Baptist. How often do you get some contact from college coaches?
I’d say I’ve been getting a new school’s interest every day for a while and now after the new ruling changes, I have about 5 coaches text me a day.
What do you think are the strongest parts of your game right now?
I am a very good mid-range scorer and I also have good court vision which allows me to make plays. I also take advantage of my defender and get a lot of rebounds.
What areas of your game are you working on, or want to work on?
I’ve become a much better three point shooter recently but I continue to work on that…and I could be a better on-ball defender with smaller guards.
Do you have a player (at any level, college or pro) that you admire?
I like Rudy Gay, Carmelo and Royce White a lot. I respect their games a lot.
What do you think of the new NCAA rules allowing coaches unlimited texting to recruits?
I think it’s a good rule, you can see what schools are most interested by how much they communicate with you…but I won’t like the rule once school starts and I have lots of tests and stuff.
Do you have any visits planned, or have you already taken any?
Yes I have visited Mercer, Holy Cross, Boston U, Boston College, Harvard, Yale , Northeastern and Fairfield. I will visit Kennesaw State this weekend.. I will take more visits as the summer goes on.
If you could tell people one thing about you that you wish they knew, what would it be?
I want to be a lawyer, everytime I tell a school that, they get surprised.. It’s funny.
