I have received confirmation that safety Taison Manu is planning on signing to play football at Idaho State when national signing day arrives on Feb. 1. What I also found out is that defensive lineman Patrick Ryan will also sign on to suit up in black and orange.
Ryan, at 6-foot-4 and 245 pounds, will probably have to bulk up a little bit as his career as a Bengal progresses.
With Manu and Ryan on board, they join fellow Highland player and wide receiver Kai Campbell.
ISU is signing local kids, which I think is huge for building a program.
