Top 2023 five-star quarterback Arch Manning spoke with On3 Sports this week and talked about his plans to visit LSU and reconnect with his former teammate Bo Bordelon.
quote:

“Coach (Brian) Kelly knows how to win … He’s won everywhere he goes pretty much. I have a former teammate, Bo (Bordelon), so he’s going up there this summer. I want to check him out, see how he does in practice and I’ll probably go up there for a game.”
Manning is the No. 1 overall player for the class of 2023 and is being recruited hard by Alabama, Texas, and Georgia.

Does LSU have a chance?

I'd be happy if he came, but spending time "recruiting him hard" is a waste of resources.

It's great to hear Manning talk so highly of Coach Kelly. BK will win championships in BR with or without Arch.

Kid is doomed. No way he lives up to th unrealistic expectations being out in him. No way

Right! Coop will never have the talent his daddy had! And Peyton will never be able to step out of the shadow of his father. Won’t ever live up to that hype. And that Eli, no chance he even makes it to the NFL. Forget about winning anything of note. What exactly makes you believe that Arch’s genetics with a lifetime of coaching from his hall of fame laden family points to flopping? Is it possible? Yes. Likely? Hahaha. You used your Magic 8 Ball didn’t you?

There's a smoke screen if there ever was one. Archie would have a f'ing stroke if that kid signed at LSU.

He talks like LSU is across the country from him.

A commitment to LSU would automatically earn him a 4 star rating

Kids like this are "coach killers." He has so much hype that if he does not go on to be uber successful then the coach is at fault.

And it causes dissent on the team. A coach is almost forced to play him and it will cause other players to transfer. It isn’t like you can stockpile players at the QB position. Some dimwits on this board don’t get it. LSU will not keep Walker Howard and Manning if they bring in Manning. We already have Walker Howard so what’s the question?

Let him go to Texas. We have our man in Walker Howard.

Why does he look like Joe Burrow in a helmet to me?

Archie Manning's grandson has no chance of coming to LSU.

I know the market is nuts for this kid but he's got more hype following him around than Peyton and Eli did combined.

Well yeah, look what Peyton and Eli did in the NFL. Their blood runs through him.

Todd Marinovich number 2. Way overhyped, even for a Manning.

Exactly.

I could give two shits about where this kid goes. Put on a LSU uniform and I’ll cheer for you. Put on someone else’s uniform and I’ll cheer against you if you play LSU. It’s that simple.

That’s nice he’s coming to visit but he’s not going to LSU and that’s fine. I honestly would take Walker Howard over him if I had the choice.

We already chose. LSU took Walker Howard last year and is going to let the chips fall where they may. In this year’s class Eli Holstein is the #1 QB in Louisiana with Ricky Collins as #2. Manning is getting a ton of hype because of his last name.

I would be stunned if Arch Manning plays at LSU. Happy, but stunned nonetheless.

It would be the biggest signee of the new millennium (just will not happen).

It would be nice if we could sign him but I say it is very doubtful that would happen.

It would be similar to the Josh Booty/Peyton Manning situation. Try to get both and end up with neither. At least for the moment, then we eventually got Booty 5 years removed of playing football. We currently have the best QB room since I've been alive.

Eli 2. Good qb but too much circus. Go somewhere else please.

So you would rather not have a qb that ends up starting in the nfl and winning a super bowl? That’s not enough talent for a college team?
