Arch Manning, the top quarterback in the 2023 recruiting class, is expected to make an announcement soon after months of speculation. The notion began with an Instagram post by ON3’s Hayes Fawcett, who began a countdown to his “Arch Manning post” on the platform.
Many people are curious about what this post will be about since it is planned to be released at 5 p.m. eastern time. Is it going to be a school list? When will you make your decision? Whatever it is, it will undoubtedly cause a stir in the college football recruiting scene.
Arch Manning, Cooper’s son, is shaping up to be the next in line in a three-headed family of quarterbacks who has had a significant effect on the game.
Archie, for starters, is a one-of-a-kind character who is both inventive and athletic and is the polar opposite of his two sons. Second, Eli and Peyton are both Hall of Famers who has etched their names in history.
Arch, ironically, mixes Archie’s athleticism with Peyton and Eli’s pocket-throwing ability. Manning has the ability to hit passes from all angles. He glides effectively in the pocket and does not need to set his feet to release a precise ball.
Most professional football fans aren’t used to Manning’s style of quarterback play. When it comes to extending plays with his legs and creating plays outside of the pocket, though, this is a far more dynamic athlete.
Georgia is highly predicted to be listed among the top colleges if a list of top institutions is announced. The other two rumored competitors in this recruiting are Alabama and Texas. Texas and Georgia seem to be the frontrunners, according to sources told SI Dawgs Daily in September.
Arch Manning has a new leader.
You could get three different replies if you ask on three separate days. What we do know is that there is no actual schedule for a final decision, as Isidore Newman of New Orleans (La.) pointed out on Monday in his first interview with the media this year.
That fuels a lot of conjecture about Manning’s future, while the ball still seems to be in the hands of Georgia, Alabama, and Texas, even if it feels like a round-robin amongst the three at the top. If any of the scheduled excursions take place within the formal visit windows in late May or June, the earliest a verbal commitment may appear is before the season, probably in July or August.
Manning will be able to get a new look at institutions on the list with less stability and/or an established track record, such as Texas, LSU, or Florida since the timetable has been extended possibly as far as the autumn.
Manning is on the lookout for a new partner.
It also implies that greater flexibility in recruiting is possible. Manning claims that the pecking order has yet to be determined and that there is plenty of time for it to shift and reshuffle before a final decision is reached.
Recently, a reliable source close to Manning’s recruiting said that Texas has the greatest spring momentum, at least for the time being.
According to the source, Georgia poses the greatest threat to the Crimson Tide’s momentum, but Alabama will stay in the race until the end of what has evolved into a three-coach effort to recruit Manning from Louisiana as the latest in a long line of elites from the Bayou looking to play for the Crimson Tide.
The New Coaching Staff for The Sec.
Those excursions are more intimate, with play-callers receiving time on the whiteboard with one of the most polished quarterback prospects of all time.
The Manning recruiting process is one where the back-and-forth in building up plays might become revealing from prospect to school or vice versa.
I’m also interested to know who attends such travels since family is an important element of official visits. Cooper, his father, has been in charge of most of the recruiting, although the three former NFL quarterbacks with the same surname might of course join him.
Finally, who of the new coaching staff is still firing on all cylinders? It’s reasonable that LSU’s Brian Kelly and Florida’s Billy Napier would want to remain in the fight for Manning in any manner they can.
The absence of customary recruiting benchmarks in this recruitment, such as publicly ranking top schools or making any public eliminations, gives those younger in the race that much more optimism in terms of time.
He made a surprising conclusion in the end.
Both of the new SEC coaching staff have links to Louisiana and experience wooing blue-chip quarterbacks, so it’s worth keeping a watch on those with a puncher’s chance, particularly if Manning doesn’t sign until the 2022 season.
Manning may reciprocate with official visits throughout the season if any team hits the ground running, particularly on offense or at the quarterback position. Before all is said and done, Kelly or Napier would receive the final in-person impression.
