'Committed to the University of Texas': Longhorns receive a pledge from QB Arch Manning
Arch Manning, the heralded quarterback prospect, has announced that he will attend Texas.
Manning is regarded as both the No. 1 overall prospect and quarterback in the recruiting class of 2023. The nephew of former NFL stars Peyton and Eli Manning, Arch attends the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans. He used his seldom-used Twitter account to break the news about his commitment Thursday morning.
According to 247Sports' composite rankings, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound Manning is a five-star prospect who has earned a rating of 1.0000. Since 2000, Vince Young has been the only Longhorns signee who has received a perfect rating. Current UT quarterback Quinn Ewers, who will be a redshirt sophomore when Manning arrives next fall, had a 1.0000 rating when he originally signed with Ohio State during the 2021 cycle.
Manning becomes the eighth member of Texas' 2023 class. He committed four days after tight end Will Randle, his teammate and classmate at Isidore Newman, also pledged to Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian.
