Manning family dynasty recruit Arch Manning commits to University of Texas

Arch Manning, the latest prospect in the Manning football family and No. 1 recruit in the class of 2023, has committed to the University of Texas. 

Manning is the nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning and the son of Cooper Manning, a former wide receiver for Ole Miss. 

The Manning football legacy began with Archie Manning, Arch Manning's grandfather 

and namesake who played for the New Orleans Saints throughout the 1970s. 

Manning joins head Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian's program after a disappointing 5-7 first season. 

Manning, who has been the starting quarterback at New Orlean's Newman High School 

since he was a freshman, was the No. 1 recruit in the 2023 class, according to 247sports. 

Manning had plenty of SEC suitors, including Georgia, Alabama and LSU, but committed to Texas after a recent visit to Austin.
