Texas football fans are excited to have coveted quarterback recruit Arch Manning coming to Austin for a visit over the weekend.

The recruiting process is heating up for Arch Manning now that he’s heading for his senior year of high school.

Every program still pursuing the five-star quarterback will have to do its best to impress as he makes a slew of visits this month.

Last weekend it was Georgia. Now he’s on to Austin to visit the Texas Longhorns, per Koki Riley of The Tuscaloosa News.

Texas football fans are pumped to have Arch Manning visit Austin

Longhorn fans can’t wait for the city of Austin to help convince Manning that he wants to wear burnt orange in college.


After his Texas visit, Manning will be heading to Tuscaloosa to visit Alabama, so he’s having a busy month on the road.

The question no one can answer yet is which school has been able to creep ahead in the race for his signature.

Manning is the No. 1 player in the class of 2023, per 247Sports. His relation to Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, his uncles, is definitely part of the equation but he’s also displayed all the skills talent evaluators are looking for in a quarterback.

As a junior at Isadore Newman in New Orleans, Manning threw for 1,947 yards and 26 touchdowns while tossing just four interceptions. He rushed for seven touchdowns as well.

This isn’t Manning’s first visit to the Longhorns but rest assured Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian will have to pull out all the stops to make sure he leaves impressed.
