Five-star quarterback Arch Manning, widely considered the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2023, committed to Texas on Thursday.
Manning is the nephew of former NFL greats Peyton and Eli Manning and the grandson of Archie Manning. He is the son of Cooper Manning.
Manning selected the Longhorns over a slew of powerhouses, including Alabama, Georgia, LSU and Clemson. He visited Alabama on June 10 and went to Georgia on June 3. He paid a visit to Austin last Friday.
The 6-foot-4 native of New Orleans is ranked as the top overall player in the 2023 class by 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals. In his junior season at Isidore Newman High School, he threw for 26 touchdowns and rushed for seven.
Manning could be the starting quarterback for Texas in 2025, the year the Longhorns enter the SEC.
