Arch Manning commits to Texas: Five-star quarterback, No. 1 overall prospect ends whirlwind recruitment

Arch Manning, the No. 1-ranked player in the Class of 2023, made huge waves Thursday by ending his whirlwind recruitment and announcing his commitment to Texas over Georgia'and Alabama. Manning, the nephew of legendary quarterbacks Eli Manning and Peyton Manning, has been the most sought-after recruiting prospect since the days of Trevor Lawrence and Justin Fields.'

"Committed to the University of Texas. #HookEm," Arch Manning announced in a tweet.

A 6-foot-4, 215-pound signal caller from Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans, Manning has thrown for 6,307 yards, 81 touchdowns and has rushed for 19 more scores in three high school seasons.

Cooper Petanga, national recruiting analyst for 247Sports, provided this scouting report on Manning:

"In addition to possessing all the physical tools desired at the quarterback position, Manning plays the game with exceptional intuition and awareness, showing the ability to command and navigate the game at a very high level," Petanga wrote. "Entering his fourth season as a starter as a senior at Newman, Manning figures to be prepared to make an immediate impact at the next level. Projects as an All-American prospect at the next level with the potential to have his name be one of the first called in the NFL Draft."
