Most of the elite college football programs are now putting much of their attention on their 2022 recruiting classes. Considering that’s the next group up, it makes sense. But a few of the elite guys in the 2023 class are already stealing some of that attention away.
Arch Manning, son of Cooper Manning and nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning, is one of those players. The five-star quarterback, top-3 player of the 2023 class has the talent and pedigree to demand such attention, and he once again put that on display at Clemson’s recent summer camp.
Check out this throw to Matayo Uiagalelei, the younger brother of current Clemson starting signal caller D.J. Uiagaleli. Both Manning and the younger Uiagalelei are rated in the top 15 for the class of 2023.

Both are ranked as Top 15 players in the class of 2023.

Manning’s overall performance at Clemson’s camp was enough to earn him an offer from Dabo Swinney and the Tigers. Some had wondered why they hadn’t offered the football prodigy already, but that situation has since been corrected.
In addition to Clemson, Manning plans to visit SMU, Texas, Alabama and Georgia this month. He could also visit USC, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Stanford as well. But expect a lot more schools to recruit the star quarterback, including Tennessee.
It should be noted that he’s already visited Ole Miss and LSU.
Where will he end up? That’s a great question, but his recruitment is going to be wildly entertaining to watch over the next couple of years.
