Arch Manning visits Texas to watch Horns battle undefeated Oklahoma State – The Athletic
Arch Manning, the No. 1 recruit in the 2023 class, paid a visit to Texas on Saturday to take in the No. 25 Longhorns’ early clash with undefeated Oklahoma State at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Manning is making his second unofficial visit to the Forty Acres this year. Arch also visited Texas in June, shortly after the NCAA’s 14-month pandemic-induced moratorium on in-person recruiting visits was lifted.
It’s one of multiple recruiting stops this season for Manning, who visited Georgia in September and Alabama on Oct. 2. Manning, a junior quarterback at Isidore Newman High in New Orleans, will also reportedly visit Ole Miss (Oct. 23) and Clemson (Oct. 30) in the coming weeks.
Manning, the son of Cooper Manning, the grandson of Archie Manning and the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning, headlines a packed recruiting weekend for Steve Sarkisian and his staff. Evan Stewart, the No. 1 receiver in the 2022 class and the No. 3 overall prospect, is also among the numerous prospects visiting.
Sarkisian was present at Manning’s game Thursday night in Hammond, La., a 12-7 Newman loss to St. Charles Catholic. Texas quarterbacks coach A.J. Milwee, who has also been an integral part of the Longhorns’ courtship of Manning, was also present at the game with Sarkisian.
On Thursday, Sarkisian said he liked Texas’ early kickoff time because it allows him to spend plenty of time with the visiting recruits. “There’s a benefit to playing in an 11 a.m. kick,” Sarkisian said. “We have all afternoon and evening to spend time (recruiting). And we know recruiting is the lifeline of our program. It’s vital to our success moving forward. So both (recruiting and the game) are very important things, but the ball game itself is priority No. 1.”
