Top recruit Arch Manning shocked the college football world with his commitment to Texas

It seems like the recruitment of No. 1 overall 2023 recruit Arch Manning has gone on forever, but on Thursday, it finally came to an end with the Texas Longhorns securing the coveted commitment from the quarterback phenom.

Manning — the son of Cooper Manning and grandson of Archie Manning (also Peyton and Eli’s nephew) — announced his commitment to Steve Sarkisian’s Longhorns on Twitter in his only tweet after Georgia had been considered the clubhouse leader in recent weeks. And despite rumors of Texas’ resurgence in the recruitment race, reports had Georgia feeling confident about signing Manning.

That late push from Texas — along with an official visit to Austin — ended up being enough.

Manning has been a starting quarterback on his high school team since his freshman season and will almost certainly step on campus as the Texas starter in 2023.

As expected, the news had college football fans in quite a frenzy on Twitter.
