The crown jewel of Texas football's 2023 recruiting class, Arch Manning will be Steve Sarkisian’s quarterback in the near future.

Though the highly anticipated freshman will have to compete against Maalik Murphy for the starting position and must wait until current starter Quinn Ewers finishes out this season, Manning is eagerly preparing for his breakout moment.

Strategically, Manning's timing to vie for Texas' quarterback starter position aligns perfectly with the Longhorns’ move to the SEC in 2024.

Additionally, the entire 2023 recruiting class will be instrumental in laying the foundation for the Longhorns when they transition into the SEC – arguably the toughest conference in all of college football.

Fans saw 11 of 14 SEC programs reach bowl games last year, including the Georgia Bulldogs who ultimately won the College Football Playoff National championships.

In 2024, Manning will be responsible for leading his 2023 recruiting class into SEC territory.

The nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning has already poised himself to take leadership within Texas football.

Though a newcomer, Arch led a number of top-ranked players to the program following his commitment.

Texas landed several recruits to its roster this year largely thanks to Manning, from five-star receiver Johntay Cook II to five-star linebacker Anthony Hill.

On the field, the talented passer has been setting an example for teammates to follow by taking part in additional workouts outside of Texas football to better his skill set.

Notably, Manning has been training with the prominent development company QB Country under founder David Morris.

This week, Arch Manning will headline the Manning Passing Academy as a counselor along with other prominent college football quarterbacks.
