Arch Manning's HS coach details 5-star QB's weight room lifting records
Arch Manning is rounding into that 5-star quarterback form that many expected from him as he progressed through high school, as he looks to commit one day to a major Power 5 school.
Ahead of his junior season, the No. 1 QB in the Class of 2023 is ready for a big campaign, his high school coach told 247Sports. Manning has already visited Clemson, SMU, Texas, LSU, Alabama and Georgia in June and Ole Miss in July.
“He’s ready to go,” Isidore Newman head coach Nelson Stewart said. “He’s really excited. I told him the other day walking off the field he’s as big as I was when I played defensive line my junior year. He’s got so big in a good way. He’s 6-4, 210.”
While Manning is most known for being Peyton and Eli’s nephew, his workout numbers are turning heads.
“Hand-clocked recently 4.65 in the 40, he benches 240 and cleans 250,” Stewart said. “He’s taken a liking to those cleans. For us we document quarterback lifting records and those are already records.”
Manning so far in his high school career has passed for 4,081 yards and 53 touchdowns with just 13 interceptions. He’s completed nearly 68 percent of his passes.
“He just likes the weight room and the ball is really coming off, his deep ball has gotten a lot better and he’s killed it as a captain,” Stewart said. “He loves meeting with all of them and going over practice plans and all our call charts. He’s had a great summer and been able to see some great schools and it hasn’t disrupted what we’ve done.”
