Arch Manning is the top ranked quarterback recruit in the nation and one of the most collegiately desired young players in the 2023 class.
As things stand, the Isidore Newman standout is believed to be contemplating three college programs, with two specifically holding a special place in his heart and one being the clear favorite.
That being said, various programs and individuals are still actively recruiting him.
There was no better example of this dynamic than a video that recently went viral featuring Arch and a random blonde girl.

“Arch Manning is coming to Ole Miss, right?” the girl could be heard asking.
“Right,” Arch replied. “Hottie Tottie.”
Obviously this isn’t exactly a blood oath, but it is an interesting development. Particularly given the fact that Arch’s grandfather, Archie, recently revealed that his grandson is an extremely big fan of Nick Saban and Alabama.
“Arch really likes the coaching staff over there,” he said. “He’s familiar with a lot of players. That was fun for him to go. It wasn’t intentional for it be the Ole Miss game to visit Alabama. It was just the weekend his family could get over there.
“They had a good visit. Coach Saban spent some time with him. He really likes coach Saban and likes coach Bill O’Brien, the offensive coordinator.”
That’s one way to celebrate divorcing Johnny Manziel. https://t.co/jQ28nDRqn1

A few weeks back, word came out that Arch had effectively eliminated one SEC school from contending for his services. Alabama and Ole Miss, meanwhile, are still very much in the hunt for him.
Where will Arch ultimately end up when it’s all said and done? Time will tell.
