Another era begins in the Manning Dynasty as Arch Manning commits to Texas, but fans from SEC powerhouses like Bama, LSU and Georgia think it’s not the end.
It’s official: The Texas Longhorns won the Arch Manning sweepstakes.
In fact, Arch Manning created a Twitter account just to announce his surprise decision to the world.
Manning has met with several SEC schools, including Alabama, LSU, and Georgia, but he ultimately chose to play for the recent SEC addition.
Dedicated football fans in Georgia, Louisiana and Alabama are all over the board with this news, with reactions ranging from predicting Manning’s failure at Texas to an eventual transfer to a school like Bama or Georgia.
It’s also worth noting that Manning, a Louisiana native like his father and uncles, did not choose to play in-state at LSU. At this point, many LSU fans are wondering why the Mannings have refused to attend LSU for generations.
Manning has chosen to join a quarterback room with Quinn Ewers, and with many college quarterbacks finding success after transfer like Joe Burrow, perhaps a transfer could be on the table down the line.
But for now, Manning is ready to Hook ‘Em in Austin, and there’s no sign that he’s headed anywhere else.
Here are the best reactions to Manning’s breaking news from around the Southeast.

Whether or not Manning remains in Texas remains to be seen, but for now, he certainly has the SEC spinning with theories and predictions about how the next generation of Mannings will fare in orange and white.
