Arch Manning, the No. 1 player in the 2023Sports class rankings of 2023, made big waves on Thursday, ending his turbulent recruitment and announcing his commitment to Texas in Alabama and Georgia. Manning, the nephew of legendary quarterback Peyton and Eli Manning and the grandson of the College Football Hall of Famer Archie Manning, has been the most sought-after recruiting percentage since the days of Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields.
“Dedicated to the University of Texas. #HookEm,” Arch Manning said in a tweet.
Manning is a 215-woman signal caller from Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans who has thrown 6,307 yards, scored 81 touchdowns and rushed another 19 points in three seasons.
He is one of seven prospects and three quarterbacks who have ever received a perfect 10,000 rating at 247Sports Composite, joining another Texas signal ringer pair, Vince Young and Quinn Ewers.
According to Cooper Petanga, 247Sports National Recruitment Analyst, Manning not only has “all the physical tools he wants to play as a quarterback,” but he also shows “an extraordinary intuition and awareness that demonstrates the ability to control and navigate the game at a very high level.”
The acquisition of Manning will continue the hot recruitment trend of Texas coach Steve Sarkisian, who will make Longhorns a destination for clearly high-level recruiters. Sark has recently moved to Austin with Ewers, a former Ohio quarterback and former five-star recruiter, former Alabama ranked Jahleel Billingsley, and several other stars as he tries to fill the empty list.
On the campus of Ewers and with the four-star Painter Murphy, the 2022 class number 12 signal caller, already in the back room. significant competition at the start of 2023 is on the horizon, no matter how successful Ewers is this season, his first in Longhorns.
Working under Alabama coach Nick Sabani in 2019 and 2020, Sarkisian saw for himself what it was like to acquire top talent and compete with as many top players as possible in practice. Putting quarter-defenders – and all high-level players – on top of each other creates the competition culture that championship caliber teams need.
Although Manning passes the opportunity to play in the SEC’s established powers in Alabama and Georgia, he is stops playing in the league when Texas (and Oklahoma) complete the transition from the Big 12 before the 2025 season, when Manning begins its third year.
Manning’s family played Arch’s recruitment near the vest, choosing his words carefully in public, confirming that the decision belonged only to Arch. In the end, Arch seemed to have chosen Texas over Georgia after Alabama approved a contingency plan last month with the commitment of another 2023 defender, Eli Holstein.
Nevertheless, Manning made official visits to all three schools in June, stopping in Texas last weekend. Finishing strong with Manning, Longhorns also accepted his high school classmate Will Randle on Sunday.
As Steve Wiltfong, director of recruitment for 247Sports, pointed out, after Manning’s visit to CBS Sports headquarters in Texas, Longhorns has not recruited another player in the 2023 class. “Steve Sarkisian and his company have been with Arch Manning since the beginning,” Wiltfong said. .
This commitment paid off in large part for Manning, as Manning promised to participate in a program that seeks to return to its former glory. Longhorns has achieved 10 victories in the last 12 seasons, only once since the heyday of Mack Brown’s tenure in the first decade of the 2000s.
But with state-of-the-art facilities, fiery leverage support, and a strong history, Texas has all the resources it needs to compete for national titles. Now they also have a potentially generational quarterback who can take the program one step closer to being truly “back” in the way that many Texas fans long to experience.
