Arch Manning, the No. 1 QB in the 2023 class, has made his last two visits of June to Alabama and Georgia. Here's how they went. First, Alabama...
quote:

Manning and his family were in Tuscaloosa over Father’s Day weekend. Highlights included talking to quarterback Bryce Young and a lot of time spent with freshman offensive lineman James Brockermeyer. Talking to the players is always one of Manning's favorite things to do on visits as he likes to get a sense for how they like it at their respective schools and why they chose to play there. Manning took in a team practice at Alabama as well.

The 6-foot-4, 208-pound Manning was able to catch up with Nick Saban and had dinner with Bill O’Brien, Doug Marrone and Pete Golding. Marrone (there is a little bit of a relationship with the family having coached with the Saints) and particularly Golding have ties to New Orleans. O’Brien’s pedigree coaching Tom Brady and DeShaun Watson among others makes him an attractive coordinator. The culture of the program and everybody’s buy-in really stands out to the rising junior as does the technology Alabama uses to make sure their players are performing at peak levels. The layers of support and resources players at Alabama have in helping them be a National Title contender year in and year out resonated with Manning.
Then his visit to Georgia went like this...
quote:

Manning was in Athens this past weekend. The family has known offensive line coach Matt Luke and senior analyst Will Muschamp for a long time, and coach Kirby Smart is good friends with Peyton Manning. There are a lot of common friends between several members of the Georgia staff and Manning family. Manning loves Athens as a college town and he was able to get on the board and talk X's and O's with offensive coordinator Todd Monken, who has seven years of NFL experience.

The Manning family had dinner with Smart, Luke, Muschamp and Monken, and like he did at Alabama, Arch got to hang out with some of the players including Jackson Muschamp, and offensive linemen Sedrick Van Pran and Tate Ratledge. Georgia’s new facilities have been raved about all month and it blew away the Mannings, too. Arch also got to see a little bit of a practice at Georgia and chatted some with starting quarterback JT Daniels.

Aggies have their QB for 2023, glad we can skip this media feeding frenzy. Doubt he will even be invited to visit.

Southern Cal is the sleeper choice. In 3 years they will be ready to pop.

He will never play for LSU. Stop posting about him. Just stop.

No other conference other than the SEC prepares future NFL players more for the NFL than the SEC. So for that reason I believe Arch will pick a team somewhere in the SEC. Furthermore, all of those top teams in the SEC are all also going to have loaded up QB rooms. Whether it be LSU, Alabama, UGA, or A&M. Hence, I have no idea what criteria Arch will prioritize to make his final decision next summer.

What a dumb comment. Nevermind that the Oklahoma alone had 3 QBs go #1 overall in a 9 year span. But don’t let me interrupt your SEC drum beating as if he went outside the conference, scouts wouldn’t find him.

Are these official visits he is taking? He will be a junior this year, so does that allow him to take more official visits his senior year? If he cannot take more official visits, why is he taking these so early in his high school career?

Kinda tired this kid getting media blowjobs because of his last name. He's talented but so are a bunch of other QBs in his class. Kid won't thrive at Alabama, he seems too much of a media whore.

He's a media whore because the media won't stop talking about him?

what has he done? He's a great prospect with an incredibly successful family history at QB. He's going to get a ton of attention - you can't blame him for it.

He would be wise to go somewhere that would allow him to put up crazy stats.

You can't count out dem Bayou Bengals of LSU. Especially after top QB prospect Eli Holstein committed to Texas A&M real early in the process. That leaves the 2 top local QB prospects Manning and Rickie Collins as must gets for LSU.

My God people Arch Manning is not going to attend LSU. Ain't going to happen. Stop doing this to yourself. It's going to leave a mark if you don't listen to me.

He's not going to Baton Rouge with Walker Howard a year ahead. There would be a good chance if that was not the case.

All the top programs, no matter where Arch wants to go, will be loaded up in their QB rooms and not just LSU. With all things being equal with respect to QB competition, then some other criteria is going to come into play.
