You may have heard there’s another Manning quarterback in high school. Of course you have, because he’s been discussed at length this summer.

Just entering his sophomore season, Arch Manning is already ranked as the nation’s No. 1 pro-style quarterback for the class of 2023 by 247Sports. The Isidore Newman signal caller hit a growth spurt this summer, too, and he now stands at 6-foot-3 and weighs around 190 pounds.

Manning threw for over 2,400 yards and 34 touchdowns during his freshman season in 2019. Most figure Ole Miss, Duke, Georgia, Tennessee and LSU are in the running for his commitment.

Manning’s father, Cooper, joined 247Sports Ben Garrett’s podcast, and he was asked about an update regarding his son’s recruitment.

“There’s genuinely no update (on his recruitment),” Manning said. “He’s played one football season, and he’s looking forward to playing his sophomore year.

“I think all of the recruiters have recognized that he’s not requiring any maintenance or even really being recruited right now. I think they realize he just wants to play his sophomore year and worry about that later. … He’s just a kid who wants to be a 10th grader and out of the limelight as best as he can. Obviously, considering the situation, that’s difficult, but he just wants to play. He’s excited about his brother being on the same team as him.”

Manning was asked how or if he shields his son from pressure to attend Ole Miss or in-state LSU.

“We’re keeping it easy, fun and light,” Manning said. “If Arch wants to go pivot and play baseball at Rutgers, that’s certainly an option. So, there’s no pressure. He doesn’t feel pressure. He just wants to be a regular guy. Other than that, he’s trying to pass chemistry and knock out a few Bs and As, and we’re keeping it fun.”

Truly, playing baseball at Rutgers would be the antithesis of playing quarterback in the SEC.

It’s easy to see below why Arch is such a coveted prospect:
