Manchester (Midlothian, VA) rising senior wide receiver Jonathan Duhart has certainly done well on the recruiting front, having reached double digits in terms of college scholarship offers as the Spring Evaluation Period comes to a close. Camp season is fast approaching, and the 6’3″, 205-pound prospect could land a few more major FBS offers with solid performances this spring and summer.
“He’s a big-time kid,” Manchester head coach Tom Hall said of Duhart, who hauled in 49 receptions for 772 yards and nine touchdowns in 2012. “He’s a full qualifier. A great kid. A fantastic kid, actually. He was named one of our captains for next season. He has everything you look for in a player. He’s a big, physical kid. He catches the ball.

A talented basketball player as well, Duhart possesses good overall athletic ability to go along with his impressive size. Coach Hall noted the standout rising senior’s playmaking ability and team-first attitude as primary strengths.
“He’s not going to wow you with 40 times, but he goes out there and makes plays every time. He’s a football player,” Hall said. “His future is bright. It’ll be fun to see where he ends up. Whoever gets him is going to get a kid who will do everything they ask. He is a high character...
