#32 Michael Mann
Position: Defensive Back
Previous College: None
Michael Tyler Mann (b. Dec. 27, 1993) is a walk-on defensive back who changed plans at the last minute after having his heart set on walking on at TCU for the longest time. And if he's good enough for Gary Patterson...
Well, I don't know what caused Mann to change his mind, but don't look a gift horse in the mouth, I say.
A three-year starter for Aledo High School under head coach Tim Buchanan, Mann helped to lead Aledo to three straight state championships.
He is the Bearcats' all-time leading receiver with 2,303 career yards on 144 catches with 22 touchdowns. His best season came as a junior, when he caught 57 passes for 1,011 yards and 11 scores. He earned all-district honors.
