It’s pretty wild that we’ve followed Arch Manning’s recruitment for years, and it’s now over. There’s also no doubt that he handled it at an incredibly high and mature level.

You didn’t see Arch tweeting dumb lists, doing dumb photoshoots or anything for attention.

He went out and dominated on the field, took his visits and kept everything private until it was time to make a commitment announcement.

He’s a young man, but there’s no doubt he’s mature beyond his years. I guess having a great family certainly helped!

Now, it’s time for Arch to play one more season of high school football before setting the college world on fire!
