To throw more confusion into the "Who will Arch Manning pick?" drama, the QB recruit told On3 earlier this week that Athens is the "best college town" he's been to so far...
quote:

“I love coach Kirby (Smart), and he’s a real normal guy, a great coach," he said, via On3. "Georgia, the takeaway from practice there, is that they have athletes all over the field, especially on the defensive line. They have some studs and it shows; they had 15 players drafted. Athens is probably the best college town I’ve ever been to. The coaches are all good people, they know how to win, know what it takes, and it was cool seeing that.”

He’s soooooooo right. In fact had the luxury to visit many in my day, in fact all of the new expanded SEC 16 with the exception being Missouri. Without a doubt my 1A and 1B are Austin and Athens. They’re just really cool tbh

It may be the best town he been to but Georgia has a lot to make up and replace from the 2021 season between the coaches and players that no longer there for the 2022 season which will be quite noticeable. Lsu had a huge turnover but it needed to happen. May take georgia a couple or 3 years to get back in it to the playoffs

If this kid started dating Lindsey Vonn or Paige, Larry would have an aneurysm.

The town may be great. Been to a few games in Athens. I would not rate the game day atmosphere in the top 6 in the SEC. Terrain makes it hard to have large clusters of tail gating. I was expecting more and came away unimpressed. I’d say it was underwhelming and overrated.

Why do you need large clusters? It's not NASCAR.

This kid better be the second coming of Tom Brady for as much hype as he’s gotten.

I had him pegged to Georgia before I knew he loved Athens. Too bad there’s no betting sites where you can bet on where a HS recruit lands. Georgia lock. No skin off our ass, our QB room is fine.

He's going to Ole Miss. Not sure why this is even being debated.

Is there a list of schools he has visited? I'm guessing lots are unofficial visits. Or did the 5 limit end in the official visits?

He may be the best Manning of them all. I've seen all but Archie play in HS. He didn't have the quality team mates this past year but that guys is better than good.

He’s gonna end up at Georgia because he thinks he can immediately beat out Bennett.

Getting sick of these, but I don't disagree with him. Athens is the sh!t as far as a true college town.
