Kirk Herbstreit is among the college football media reacting to Arch Manning’s commitment to Texas.

Herbstreit appeared on “SportsCenter” Thursday to share his thoughts on the biggest news in the college football world. The ESPN broadcaster expects that landing Manning will help Texas bring in more top talent, especially on offense.

“It’s big because not only do you get Arch Manning, but we all know how this is going to impact tight ends, receivers, running backs who are all going to want to play with him,” Herbstreit told host Elle Duncan, per On3.

Landing Manning is a huge get for Steve Sarkisian, heading into his second year as the Texas head coach. Herbstreit praised Sarkisian as one of the sport’s top offensive minds.

“I keep going back to Sark,” Herbstreit continued. “You can count on one hand how many offensive minds have an ability to put a quarterback in a position to have success the way Steve Sarkisian can as a play-caller and the way he designs plays. He’s a guy that ultimately knows how to attack. I’m sure the relationship that he had with the family had a lot to do with this.”

One commitment – no matter how significant – doesn’t mean Texas is “back” in Herbstreit’s opinion.

“This is a big day to celebrate. I’m not one of these to say anybody’s ‘back,’” Herbstreit said. “Texas is not ‘back’ right now. I think their real fans would tell you that. But this is definitely a step in the right direction and a recruiting coup not only to get the quarterback, but eventually, watch the other dominos fall behind him because of getting such a big-time recruit and a quarterback who’s a distributor in that offense that Mac Jones and Tua [Tagovailoa] and others have played in over the years.”
