Alabama has netted a top-100 recruit at quarterback for three years straight and they would love to add another with a very famous last name. The best-case scenario is obvious in Arch Manning, the grandson of a cultural icon and the nephew of two Super Bowl winners.
Manning has heard from college football powers like Alabama, Georgia and Texas. Earlier this week, he reportedly removed one team from consideration. According to a report from recruiting insider Steve Wiltfong, Manning removed the Clemson Tigers from his list.
“Manning is currently playing basketball and did not take any visits in January. There is evidence he is also narrowing his list recently removing Clemson, another program he visited twice from consideration.”
According to Wilftong, Manning has four programs “near the top of his list.”
“The New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman blue-chipper has Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss and Texas near the top of his list,” Wilftong said. “Manning visited both in the summer and returned to each campus for a game during the fall.”
Throughout his three-year preps career, Manning has thrown for 5,731 yards, 72 touchdowns and just 18 interceptions, according to MaxPreps.
Right now, Manning is solely focused on basketball as many coaches around the country are still checking him out as he takes his talent to the hardwood.
The five-star junior quarterback, ranked No. 1 in his class, averaged 2.7 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.1 assists per game.
