Booty was a way bigger recruit than Peyton.
This is where I usually get in trouble on this board
All I'm saying is I (as in me, H-Town Tiger) don't remember it that way and I admit it could be because of his last name and where I am from.
And I'm not saying Booty wasn't a big time recruit or #1 on at least some AA lists. I do remember everyone being really excited about getting him at LSU. But I remember them both being top 10 players and the top 2 QB's with both being #1 on some lists, I could be wrong about that, maybe Booty was #1 on everything, but unless proven other wise, I'm pretty sure Manning was at worst the #2 QB. He was recruited by Spurrier and I think Bill Walsh who was at Stanford besides Tenn of course. I don't remember who else was recruiting Booty, but I'm sure it was a similar list, in any event I
heard more about Manning.
