Arch Manning is the most sought-after high school football prospect in the country right now.
In part due to his natural skillset, and in part due to his royal lineage, the hype surrounding Manning and his future has reached unparalleled heights.
You will recall, Manning giving some random blonde girl a commitment to a school in bed a few months ago went mega-viral. That’s how insane the coverage around this youngster has been.
With Manning’s decision on where he’s going to play in college looming, all eyes are on who he is interacting with and how he’s feeling about them.
This week, 247Sports reported that two programs are rapidly making their way up Manning’s board.
“At one point Florida and LSU weren’t even a factor but with the changes at the helm at each program, those schools are rising for Manning,” the report read.
Up until recently, three schools were seen as the favorites. Obviously this changes things to some degree.
At this point it seems clear that three to five programs have emerged as legit suitors for Manning. Beyond that, one big-name school has officially been taken out of the running and another dark-horse continues to circle in the background.
That being said – it’s still an open race.
For all the talk and chatter up until this point, Manning’s services seem very much up for grabs.
Last year the youngster recorded 1,913 yards and 26 touchdowns in 10 games through the air, as well as 381 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. His talent is very legit. And he doesn’t come with any weird fetishes, like some of his contemporaries.

An answer regarding Manning’s future should come sooner rather than later.
Where will the youngster ultimately end up when it’s all said and done?
Time will tell.
