ESPN 150 defensive tackle Justin Manning (Dallas/Kimball) said via Twitter and confirmed via text message that he did not make the trip over the weekend to LSU to watch the LSU-Alabama game.

It also appears that Manning’s process now comes down to three schools -- and LSU isn’t one of them.

Manning, No. 89 in the ESPN 150, said via text that the interest with LSU has taken a different path, but he is now focusing on Oklahoma, Texas A&M and TCU. He would not comment on whether he separated himself from LSU or LSU pulled his offer.
