The Texas defensive back even got praise from his fellow All-Star teammates.
"He's a lot better than I expected," five-star tight end Martellus Bennett said. "He definitely deserves to be here."
"He's a guy played solid football all year," Seminole Defensive Coordinator Mickey Andrews said. "He also played well in Army All-Star game. He's a guy that likes to get up there and play bump and run. He's a physical player who is a good tackler. That's the thing offenses are making corners do just now especially with blocking out safeties. If corners can't make tackles, then you got problems. I think he's a guy that will help us out."
Mangum finished his junior season with 76 tackles, six picks, two fumbles caused and two fumble recoveries. Mangum can bench 285 pounds, squats 445 and he has a 34-inch vertical jump.
Mangum will also be joined by two of his La Marque teammates in Russell Ball and Clarence Ward.
