Arch Manning has considered an ACC school during his recruitment over the last year, but on Friday, a surprising development emerged.

Manning is reportedly visiting Virginia, according to Jacquie Franciulli of 247Sports. Over the course of his recruitment, Manning has either visited, or considered, Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Clemson, Ole Miss and LSU.

His high school coach recently told ESPN that Manning is not in a hurry to decide.

“I think he’s still very open, but he said he wants to go to practices and sit in meetings,” Nelson Stewart said. “He really is a meat and potatoes kid, he wants to go see the schools, he’s not about the fluff. I think he’s pretty locked in with what he wants to do, but he’s not one of those guys that’s going to announce a list or anything.

“He’s being really thorough. He’s going to get through this round and see where it is. He definitely doesn’t have a timeline.”

The son of Cooper, and nephew of Peyton and Eli, is the No. 1 recruit in the Class of 2023, and he most recently visited Alabama, but has visited many of the schools at least once, officially or unofficially. Projections about Manning’s decision seemingly change each week, and typically lean toward the school he visited most recently.
