Arch Manning commits to the University of Texas

The latest quarterback from the Manning family has announced his college plans.

In a post to Twitter on Thursday, Arch Manning said that he has committed to play for the University of Texas. Manning is the top recruit in the class of 2023 and landing his commitment is a big feather in the cap of head coach Steve Sarkisian as he heads into his second year with the Longhorns.

Manning is the son of Cooper Manning, grandson of Archie Manning and the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning, so his development will be watched closely by NFL teams over the next few years.

Under current rules, he would not be eligible to be drafted until 2026 but Manning won’t have to wait that long to begin earning money. He will be able to cash in on his name, image, and likeness while still in school and the long list of endorsement deals that his family has accrued over the years suggests that he’ll have plenty of companies interested in getting into business with him right away.

  1. WOW! Sarkesian scores. Must have been some huge NIL potential in Austin?

  2. With the #1 pick in the 2026 draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Arch Manning.

  3. Cooper is my favorite manning. His commercials are the best. Peyton second, as he is the GOAT (shut up what have you done for me latelies brady fans). And hopefully this kid is third. NFL needs Mannings in it.

    But we’re good, Eli, go sit down. Over there. No Back farther toward the corner. Further, further, further, good.

  4. I know college football was never what it was made out to be, but at this point with NIL it is just an inferior version of the NFL with unlimited free agency and no salary cap. Texas has really deep pockets so look for them to finally be an actual power again rather than be ranked high every year and lose their way out of the rankings.

  5. “unlimited free agency and no salary cap” makes college football extremely interesting.

  6. Well, at least we know which college football team will NOT win the championship over the next 5 seasons……

  8. Watching Arch Manning’s career will be interesting, It may be that UT has the handle handle of NIL, but the transfer portal could derail their plans.

  9. I don’t see the hype about Austin Texas. The weather is horrendously hot. The area is overrun with belligerent homeless people who yell obscenities at you if you don’t give them money. The scenery around the area is bland and ugly. The university of Texas wasn’t impressive at all either. Just my take anyway.

  10. We’re just watching and waiting for Nick Saban to offer his opinion.
    You know he’s going to have one.

  11. The Manning family has never ever turned down making a buck off their name, a NIL somewhere around $50 million probably got the deal done. And with that money if he becomes a top draft pick he can tell the likes of the Jets/Lions/Jags/etc thanks, but I am going to do what Eli did so don’t draft me.

    How soon until Texas and Texas A&M have a higher payroll then a NFL team, I say 3 years before they are paying well over $200 million for college players.

  12. Sarkisian has always been a dynamite recruiter. The problem is the other parts of the job. Has he ever won more than 7 games, and he hasn’t exactly been cutting his teeth at Akron or Tulane. Go look at some of the players from those Washington years who had long NFL careers or even from his brief time at USC.

  13. I wonder if Ceasar and Cleopatra will be going to the games. After all Arch is the son of Cooper who is Caesar’s favorite Manning.

    Seriously? Try again. Paul Allen before he passed would have owned the league.

    Bezos said he’s interested in buying the Hawks.

    Please do away with the salary cap.

  15. Waiting for a new rule…you can play college ball until you are 50. Seems they are making more money than the Pro’s with no salary cap or rookie wage scale.
    This guy will make more than Brady/Mahomes/Rodgers/Wilson per year by the time he gets to the NFL.
