Arch, the son of Cooper Manning, is the top overall recruit in the 2023 class, according to 247Sports. He committed to Texas in June, choosing the Longhorns over powerhouse programs like Georgia, Alabama, LSU and Clemson. Arch also had offers from Ole Miss, where Eli and Archie (Arch's grandfather) played, and Tennessee, where Peyton played.
With Arch in the fold, Texas boasts the No. 3 2023 recruiting class behind Alabama and Georgia, per 247Sports. Arch is one of three five-star recruits in the class.
Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics and more
The Longhorns recently made headlines for reportedly spending nearly $280,000 on a visit from Arch and several other recruits.
