Seems that he's not cleared to compete for FSU yet. Today Tony McQuay asked him on twitter (a source I usually don't like to quote but I did it here for informational purposes) if he'd be running at Penn, and Josh's answer was:

"idknow ... If I'm cleared then I will for FSU if not I need to hop on unattached"

McQuay then tweeted that he was running for the USA team at Penn but didn't know who else was on the squad but he knew who should be, and Mance replied that he'd try to get on the USA team then too.

Whether or not he'll run at Oxy on the west coast this weekend, I don't know, but the fact that he's entered suggests he may not be with the FSU program the rest of this season. He'll head in to this meet with his 2013 US#3 45.43, going against J. Hughes (who split 44.9 at Penn), along with Greg Nixon...

Might FSU be losing 3 very good college sprinters... Mance, Bracy and Newbold?

Yes FSU without ALL 3 moving forward. Word is sprint coach Ken Harnden is off to alma mater Clemson at end of season. Pretty reliable source on all this.

Mance looked very good at Oxy today and I expect he will be a force at US Nationals again.

I expect really good things from Josh this year. 21 years of age, only 0.25 seconds off his PR in early May, US #1 time after today, and after his recent controversy... yes, there should be more to come. Was J. Hughes in the Oxy race? - I was wondering if he was pressed at all.

Would love to know who the "pretty reliable " source is, especially as he never went to Clemson (UNC, turned Pro early, graduated from FSU).

Holy shit. He ran basically 45-flat in a time trial.

Keisha Baker's 51.15 looked pretty good too. In that race Demus got out very well, but Baker rolled her up through the back straight and systematically pulled away all the way to the finish.

My brain fart on the alma mater, knew that, still I hear Harnden is going to Clemson. This source is an athlete close to the program. Could they be wrong? Sure. With the success Harnden has had at FSU I would see this as a positive step up and a big increase in salary that all who know him would be happy for him to receive.

He's wearing the 2013 Nike pro kit.

He is not going to Clemson, that is a guarantee, did not even apply for the open job.

Interesting observation Jumbo... whether he turns pro or not, I hope he finishes his college education with only a year left.

He is turning pro, done with FSU. Kit may have been borrowed though not smart if he hasn't signed a deal yet as it would limit his negotiations with various companies.
