The recruiting chronicles of Arch Manning took another turn over the weekend, as the nation’s top-ranked recruit made his official visit to the National runner-up's the University of Alabama Crimsons Rolls Tide.

Though Manning has one more official visit left, the five-star quarterback from Isidore Newman School in Louisiana posed fully equipped in a Crimson Tide uniform in the locker room, an image that made a big buzz and headlines on social media in the SEC territory.

Even more, the star quarterback was not alone.

Manning was joined by other high-profile top recruits also posing in full gear at the Crimson Tide’s facilities.

Five-star running back recruit Richard Young shared a photo of himself with Manning in front of a wall of jerseys, all of which belong to former members of the Crimson Tide that were drafted in the first round of their respective NFL drafts.

There’s plenty of time left before Manning has to make a decision, but it seems that he is down to only a short list of prospective programs including Georgia, Texas, and the heavily favored Alabama.

Like the Manning family, the Crimson Tide has a rich history in the football. As a program with one of the most national championship titles, it will come to no surprise if the prospect tries to add his name to the list of greats produced by the program. After all, the Roll Tide's do hold the all-time record for the most players drafted into the NFL.

Arch, who is also the grandson of NFL legend Archie Manning, put together a stellar junior season, completing 148 of 228 pass attempts for 1,947 yards and 26 touchdowns, with just four interceptions, while rushing 41 times for 381 yards and seven touchdowns.
