"man, this kid is going to be really really really good in 2 years. gives me Joe Burrow vibes," one fan tweeted.

"His release is the fastest I've seen for that age. He's going to be really really good," another noted. "Especially with a few designed runs. Even that batted deep pass was better that Quinn's and that one dropped slant in the endzone was perfect."

"Arch Manning could be the total package. Mobility like gramps, arm like dad & [uncles], and a Manning football mind. Mos def has the pedigree," another fan wrote.

With the anticipated return of Quinn Ewers to Texas in 2024, it may be some time before Manning assumes the starting quarterback role for the program.

Looking ahead, Texas is gearing up to compete in the Big 12 Championship Game next weekend.
