Arch Manning is going to be a Texas Longhorn.
The highly anticipated recruiting watch is finally over after Manning posted on his Twitter feed Thursday afternoon that he has committed to the University of Texas.
Manning, the No. 1 QB recruit in the 2023 class, had narrowed down his choices to Texas, Alabama and Georgia while also considering LSU, Clemson and Virginia.
The quarterback, who will enter his senior year at Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans, has been on the college football radar for quite a while due to his abilities and his namesake — being the nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning and grandson of Archie Manning.
By committing to Texas, Arch will play for head coach Steve Sarkisian, who has a reputation as a sort of “quarterback whisperer,” developing notable quarterbacks such as Tua Tagovailoa, Mac Jones and Matt Leinart.
Arch will most likely not make his debut until 2025, when he will be a sophomore and Texas will debut in the SEC.
He will be joining a busy and talented quarterback room, which includes Quinn Ewers — considered the top QB recruit of the 2021 class and recently transferred from Ohio State.
