Manoah was the ace of a South Dade team that won the program's first Florida state title. He was used heavily down the stretch, throwing 24 innings in the playoffs, including the final four outs of the state title game a day after throwing more than 115 pitches in a complete-game effort. Manoah, who threw 89-92 mph in the fall, pitched primarily at 87-90 this spring, touching 92 with downhill plane and armside run. Although he has a quick arm and the ball jumps out of his hand, he used a slower delivery this year. His curveball flashed plus potential in the fall but played at fringe-average this spring. His changeup usage lags behind his curveball but flashes average potential. He is a natural strike-thrower who has the potential for at least average control. Manoah has a strong pitcher's body at 6-foot-1, 210 pounds with long arms, a short torso and developed lower half. A team buying him out of his Florida International commitment is hoping his velocity and plus curveball return to match his advanced pitchability.
