FORT COLLINS, Colo. – The Colorado State men’s basketball team added some speed to its roster, signing Florida point guard Cody Mann to a National Letter of Intent for the 2011-12 season. Head Coach Tim Miles made the announcement Thursday.
“We are excited to add Cody to our program,” said Miles. “He provides our team with great speed and quickness and an innate ability to create for others. Cody is a point guard who has the feel for putting his teammates in the right positions and delivering the ball on time and on target.”
Mann, a 5-11, 170-pound prospect from Miami, Fla., averaged 15 points and four assists per game as a senior for national power Dr. Krop High School, where he played for Miami-area coaching legend and former Florida International head coach Shaky Rodriguez.
He helped his team to a No. 8 national ranking during the 2010-11 season, playing along Kansas State-bound backcourt mate Angel Rodriguez. Mann led the Lighting with 18 points in a victory on Jan. 22 over national top-ranked Miller Grove (Ga.) High School.
“Cody has a great personality and carries himself like a winner,” added Miles. “I think he will be a player and person that thrives on the basketball court and in the Colorado State community.”
