Arch manning Isidore Newman High School has been in the national spotlight since his freshman stint at New Orleans, Louisiana.
The quarterback’s class of 2023, barely a junior, runs the same high school that his father Cooper and uncles Peyton and Eli Manning attended. One of their games in 2020 was on ESPN and two have already been broadcast online in 2021, including Friday night in a 49-24 loss to Tampa, Florida, Berkeley Prep.
Even when the Buccaneers dominated, especially true for the Iowa state running backs’ commitment Xavier Townsend and his five touchdowns, the broadcast and most of the spectators were scored at No. 16.
Attention isn’t slowing down anytime soon and it turns out that recruiting will take place in the spring months of 2022 at the earliest.
Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Texas, Ole Miss, LSU and everyone else are actively pointing to the NFL legacy of 6’4 ”and 215 pounds. He’s been busy on the road trip and will continue to do so through the remainder of the fall and probably well beyond the looming change of coaches in December.
“I think I’ll have a good idea, a good feeling, probably next summer or next spring,” Manning said of an engagement timeline after the game. “Right now I have no idea.”
Georgia head coach Kirby Smart was on hand to see Manning in person. Texas sent several coaches, including Steve Sarkisian, to do the same last week. The junior has already visited each program several times this year.
“It’s really cool that they come out of the closet,” he said. “I don’t know if I was the only one watching, there were other stallions in the field, but it was great to see them here. I’ve built a relationship with both guys. ”
Ole Miss will be the next show to have ‘the next’ Manning on campus along with the majority of the Manning family on Saturday, considering Eli’s number 10 jersey will be retired. The young quarterback, who also made quick leg plays on Friday night, called Oxford “a second home” ahead of his latest trip.
But it seems that the unofficial visit will be just that, the last. Evaluations of each program, its staff and the perspective of the most important position in the game are ongoing.
“Right now I’m just going to watch games and see what it’s like,” Manning said. “I’m not really worried about it. I don’t love being out of town every weekend, but it’s been fun seeing places and making some connections. ”
Eli and Archie Manning have each recorded about the family legacy and how it relates to the next generation. Arch echoed what his grandfather said during the week when asked about his approach on Friday night. The junior said he was in Newman Greenies, now on a two-game losing streak, and returning to the right side of the win column.
The focus won’t diminish the likes, retweets, and eyes when CBS inevitably shows the teen on its national broadcast of Ole Miss and LSU on Saturday afternoon.
“You know he’s not inviting all this scrutiny,” Archie said on WNSP in Mobile. “I guess social media has changed the world too, but he’s not really a big part of it. And you know, his main focus is his team’s quarterback and them trying to win some games and I think they’re having fun. Playing . “
