Arch Manning is an elite 5-star QB and the nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning. That’s all stuff you know by this point.

What no one knows is where he’ll end up playing in 2023 and beyond, as the Isidore Newman High School QB has played things close to the vest during his recruitment.

After a report came out that Manning was down to 2 schools, 247Sports recruiting director Steve Wiltfong disputed that report. In fact, Wiltfong wrote, Manning’s list of schools seems to be growing:

A recent report that the Top247’s No. 1 recruit Arch Manning is down to two schools is not true, his father Cooper tells 247Sports. In fact, because of some regime changes at a couple SEC schools, there are actually two more programs prominently in the mix alongside the known contenders for the coveted passer from New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Manning still has a keen eye on Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss and Texas, schools he visited during the summer and returned for games during the fall. Beyond those four, Florida and LSU are definitely in play moving forward. I think all six of those programs will get Manning on campus in the spring/summer.

Per Wiltfong’s report, Clemson is still on the outside looking in when it comes to Manning’s recruitment.

So, it seems things are still wide-open for the No. 1 2023 recruit.
