The Texas Longhorns are apparently a top contender for 2023 five-star quarterback Arch Manning out of Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. But so are several other blue blood programs, like the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Ole Miss Rebels.
247Sports offered some of their musing recently on the topic. From 247Sports:
“You got the five schools that he took two visits to Alabama, Clemson, Ole Miss, Georgia and Texas. Those are the schools that I think are in the best position but as Nelson Stewart, the head coach at Isidore Newman, said Tuesday morning, Arch is going to be thorough. And again, Ohio State, they’re chopping wood here. Coach Stewart pointed to Ryan (Day and) his track record at the position, so maybe they get a visit down the road. I think the point is that Arch Manning’s taking it slow, taking his time, still talking to a lot of schools, and in the spring will resume visits and we’ll see where he goes.”
