Arch Manning and his Uncles' recruitment
Foremost, I expect that once Arch commits, that's it. I'd be shocked if he were to change his mind, de-commit, and so forth. His family comes across as much more grounded than that.

That said, I also don't expect him to wait until National Signing Day to provide his commitment. Do any of you remember when Cooper, Peyton, and Eli committed? It's been so long ago, I can't quite remember.

ETA: I also think Tennessee and Duke being listed in the mix are just to appease and show respect to Peyton and Coach Cutcliffe. However, I do think there is some teeth in Georgia being listed. They are behind Ole Miss and LSU, but I wouldn't write them off.

Agreed on the first point. Manning family will make sure that once the kid commits, that's it.

I'm really interested in a few things with him:

- is he going to continue to get better and live up to the hype?
- what it really comes down to in terms of committing. I'm assuming his dad is an ole miss fan? I'm not a recruiting expert, but from what I seen, this seems to be a Ole Miss, LSU battle with UGA/UT/Duke in the next tier.

Arch is Coopers son. Cooper played football at Ole Miss. If cooper had not had a career ending injury, Peyton would have gone to ole miss to play with Cooper. Arch’s grand dad and uncle are legendary Ole Miss football players.

Ole Miss will be a major competitor for Arch.

re: Arch Manning and his Uncles' recruitment
I love the fact the kid has no social media and his family doesn't permit him to do interviews.

He's 15 for Pete's sake. Let him be a kid for a bit before he has to be a grownup.

I hope UGA is in it for him; I know we've made contact with the family to express interest. I hope he'll visit Athens before he chooses where to play. Do I hold out hope that he comes to Athens? Not really.

I want to say watching the Manning documentary on ESPN that Peyton announced UT on Signing Day in February. I don't think he committed early; I don't recall that being prevalent in his day.

Randy Livingston - the basketball coach at Newman - said Arch is always in LSU gear fwiw.

I would bet it comes down to LSU vs Ole Miss.

Tennessee has been mediocre his whole life.

They’re not gonna want to put him in a bad situation at Duke.

Maybe a wild card enters the picture like Ohio State or Georgia. Maybe even Bama but my money is on LSU or Ole Miss.

All the things I’m hearing in Nola is that the family truly isn’t going to push him either way. They want him to take his time and make the decision on his own, like Peyton.

No where near the same.

1. You get drafted. You don't commit.
2. Eli didn't want to play for the Chargers. He never agreed to go there and then changed his mind.

re: Arch Manning and his Uncles' recruitment
He's been going to LSU and Ole Miss games since he was young. Ole Miss games with family, LSU games with friend's family,more LSU games last year than OM.My nephew goes to Newman. Says he's all about LSU as a fan. Wont discuss recruiting ever. Family doesn't love Coach O but they don't dislike either.

You would think so. BMOC on day one, with that family name in that pretty city with those beautiful coeds would have a certain allure.

He’s going to be the #1 recruit in the nation. He’s BMOC on any campus day 1.

re: Arch Manning and his Uncles' recruitment
Yeah, he’s going to be at the top of everyone’s recruiting board. I’m hoping with LSU getting a top qb in the class above his, he will see ole miss as the better place to quick playing time. Part of me thinks because he is a Manning no way he goes to LSU but they will let him make his own decision and LSU is always going to have the talent to win a national championship.

As much as I want the family to push him to ole miss I truly believe they will support any decision he makes and you would hope that’s the way all families approached this

Arch went 13-16 for 260 with 5 TDs and 1 INT in Newman’s season opener against East Jefferson yesterday. He also rushed for a TD. Newman won 41-0.

From the people that are close and have known them for a while, they have said, as of today, that it's OM then LSU.

I'll throw a wild card out there: Texas.

If it’s ole miss Arch should go ahead and commit and help with recruiting the 2021 and 2022 classes.
