ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Saint Louis has signed a 6-11 center to a national letter of intent.
Coach Rick Majerus said Wednesday that John Manning of Chantilly, Va., was a "diamond in the rough."
Manning averaged nearly 11 points for a 20-8 team that advanced to the Virginia Class AAA state semifinals.
Rivals.com named him a three-star recruit and ESPN.com named him the 40th best center in the country.
