Arch Manning is perhaps the top quarterback prospect in the nation, and he may one day take his talents to Tennessee. And why not? It’s where his uncle, Peyton Manning, starred more than 20 years ago.
Of course, Arch Manning just finished his sophomore season at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans and won’t be available for colleges until 2023. But that won’t keep new Tennessee coach Josh Heupel from trying.
As 247 Sports reported, Heupel has reaffirmed the Volunteers’ offer to Manning, and they are “in the race.”
Manning doesn’t really comment on his recruitment, and he doesn’t have social media. So everything is kept very close to the vest. He is the son of Cooper Manning, the brother of Peyton and Eli and son of Archie. So Arch is Archie’s grandson.
Basically, the kid has some darn good quarterbacking bloodlines.
He is proving he is more than just a name though. This past season, Arch completed nearly 72 percent of passes, throwing for 1,643 yards and 19 touchdowns. He was picked off just seven times.
When it comes to the 2023 recruiting class, 247 ranks Arch Manning as the No. 5 overall prospect and No. 1 pro-style QB.
Not a big surprise, then, that the Volunteers would be highly interested and reaffirm their offers.
