The number one player overall for the Class of 2023, according to 247Sports, one of the most coveted recruitments in recent history ended today as Arch Manning made his college decision.
Announcing that he would be playing his college football at the University of Texas.
This decision by Manning was one that had just come out of a summer when he visited his last three potential schools; Georgia, Alabama and Texas. Ultimately, Arch’s choice was to play for Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns, becoming the first Manning to play football outside of the Southeastern Conference, at least for a few years.
Son of Cooper Manning, Arch is shaping up to be the next in a three-headed family monster of quarterbacks who have had a massive impact on football. First of all, Archie, an original of his own, creative and athletic, the antithesis of his two boys. Second, Eli and Peyton are Hall of Famers in their own right and men who left their mark in the history books.
Ironically, Arch combines both Archie’s athletic style and Peyton and Eli’s command for the standard pocket pass. Manning can hit pitches from different angles. He moves well in the pocket and doesn’t need to adjust his feet to deliver an accurate ball. It’s not Manning’s quarterback style of play that most pro football fans have grown accustomed to. However, he is a much more dynamic athlete when it comes to extending plays with his legs and making plays out of the pocket.
