Mannion reclassified to the 2019 class in July.

Named the Gatorade Arizona Player of the Year, Mannion led Pinnacle to its first 6A Championship last season. He is ranked the No. 17 2019 prospect overall by 247 Sports.

He’s kept busy over summer, becoming the fourth-youngest player to play for the Italian National Team, according to FIBA Twitter.

He also attended the Steph Curry camp in August.

Last season, Mannion averaged 23.4 points 5.8 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game for Pinnacle. In the championship game, he scored a game-high 21 points and made three 3-pointers.

In cutting down his list of potential schools to four, Mannion took Pac-12 schools Oregon, Utah, UCLA and USC out of the running.

Those universities had been included in his top 10.
