His Path to the McDAAG

Through Tre Mann’s years of high school at the Villages Charter, he has has developed into one of the best guards in the class of 2019. I had the opportunity to watch the majority of this year’s McDonald’s All-American’s since they were in the eighth grade, but I didn’t get to see Mann in action until after his sophomore high school season. The first chance to watch him was at the Nike Elite 100, where some of the top freshman and sophomore get invited to participate in a camp setting.

The Florida native dominated at the event and showed he was one of the best pure scorers in attendance. Fast forward to this past Nike EYBL season with E1T1 United, and he continued to shine. The 6-foot-3 scoring guard averaged 17.3 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 21 games while shooting over 37 percent from three. Tre Mann is one of the most lethal scorers that will participate in the McDonald's All-American Game, and his track record proves why.

What's Next?

The Villages Charter High School (F.L.) standout decided to stay home for college, committing to the University of Florida. Gators head coach Mike White has put together quite the talented class, as Mann will be joined with fellow McDonald’s All-American Scottie Lewis, Montverde Academy (FL) standout Omar Payne and Team Rio (NJ) veteran Alex Klatsky.

The Gators are currently on the bubble to the make the NCAA Tournament this year, so the overload of talent arriving next fall will be welcomed with open arms. Mann can play on or off the ball, and will be a terrific complement to the Gators' returners. He’s no doubt an immediate impact player in Gainesville, and Mann should be a contender for SEC Newcomer of the Year in 2019-20.
