Huge news in the world of college football… Peyton and Eli Manningthe nephew of, Manning Arch – the best HS football player in the country – has committed to Texas.
The 18-year-old quarterback just made the decision … announcing the oral pact in a six-word tweet Thursday morning.
In his announcement, Arch included a picture of himself in a Longhorns t-shirt…adding “#HookEm.”
This move has potential seismic ramifications for the college football landscape…because Arch is just plain good.
He is ranked as both the No. 1 HS quarterback in the nation, as well as the No. 1 HS football player overall by all major scouting services.
Arch – whose father is Cooper Manning – tore up defenses for years at Isidore Newman HS, the same Louisiana school as Peyton, Cooper and Eli (as well as Odell Beckham Jr.!) all present.
Arch had scholarship offers from every major program in the United States … and ultimately chose Texas over its other two reported finalists, Alabama and Georgia.
Arch won’t be eligible to play for the Longhorns for another year – he has yet to finish his senior season in Louisiana – but when he does, watch out… another Manning has arrived!
Our sincere thanks to
