Syracuse Football: DE Josh Manley Transferring To Charlotte

Manley's SU career hasn't panned out as hoped and he announced his plans to transfer to Charlotte today via Twitter.

Syracuse Orange defensive end Josh Manley (Dexter Manley's nephew) came to us from Georgia, where we beat out Georgia Tech, Boston College and whole ton of other ACC schools for his services. Two years later, Manley's SU career hasn't panned out as hoped and he announced his plans to transfer to Charlotte today via Twitter.

Manley redshirted his first season and only saw action in the Wake Forest game this year. Certainly you can't begrudge a guy for feeling like the situation doesn't work and going after one he feels is better for him.

Charlotte is coming off their first season in the FCS, going 5-6. Manley will be eligible to play the 49ers right away. Charlotte will be moving up to FBS in 2015.

Fare thee well, Josh. We wish you good luck and success.
