Nick Saban made not-so-subtle recruiting pitch to Arch Manning during 'Monday Night Football' with Peyton and Eli
Nick Saban appeared to do a little recruiting while appearing on the ESPN2 broadcast of “Monday Night Football” with Peyton and Eli Manning.
The Manning brothers hyped up Saban as “quarterback guru,” noting that Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa and Mac Jones are QB1’s in the NFL. Saban happens to be recruiting a potential future NFL QB in Arch Manning, Peyton and Eli’s nephew.
Saban appeared to make a not-so-subtle recruiting pitch to Arch: QBs should go to the team with the most talent.
On the Manningcast Nick Saban said it’s important that a quarterback go to the team where he’ll be surrounded by the most talent. I’m sure that wasn’t directed at Arch Manning.

Saban’s comments were in relation to Hurts’ transfer from Alabama to Oklahoma. Saban recalled asking Hurts which team had the best players. Hurts answered Oklahoma and Saban told him that’s where he should go.
#Alabama HC Nick Saban says @JalenHurts’ transfer to #Oklahoma was a “joint decision” he helped the QB make while on MNF’s “Manningcast” …
Saban: “He asked me where he should go & I said, ‘Who has the best players?’ And he said: ‘Oklahoma.’ I said, ‘That’s where you should go.’” pic.twitter.com/mVg6kv3wl4

If Arch Manning wants to play with the best players, he would be well off going to Alabama.
