Ohio State, Florida trying to make up ground in Arch Manning recruiting race

Both the Ohio State Buckeyes and Florida Gators are interested in Arch Manning. Will either end up landing the talented quarterback recruit?

Arch Manning is a remarkable talent and is a highly sought-after quarterback recruit. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound recruit is a five-star, according to his recruiting profile on 247Sports.

Given how talented he is (and his last name), it shouldn’t come as a surprise that just about every team in the country would love to have Manning play for them.

According to a report from 247Sports, just about everyone is all-in on Manning, but a couple of college football blue bloods are really trying to make a late push to make up ground as Manning’s recruiting race continues on.

The Ohio State Buckeyes and Florida Gators are the two teams who are really trying to make their names know to Manning, according to 247Sports’ Steve Wiltfong.

Arch Manning recruiting update: Will either the Ohio State Buckeyes or Florida Gators land Arch Manning?

This is a recruiting race that will be intriguing to keep up with. It seems incredibly likely that Manning will have his choice of programs that will continue to express interest and do just about everything possible to get his attention.

According to the folks over at 247Sports, Manning seems to have the most interest in Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Ole Miss, and Texas. Everyone else seems to come after that.

But, if Ohio State or Florida (or anyone else) is able to successfully gain some ground here, then it’d be fair to expect that Manning’s already headline-creating recruitment will only get more attention moving forward.
