A pretty awesome story about Arch Manning today. Yes, another Manning will be coming to the NFL at some point. Here’s some awesome tidbits about Arch:
- He’s not on social media. Like at all. No Twitter, No Facebook, No Tik Tok. Nada, zero zip.
- He does no interviews
Arch is not on social media, and he’s never done an interview. Except for a few benign comments, the usually accessible Mannings declined to speak about Arch for this story or to make him available. (SI)
3. He is not listening to any recruiting offers or scholarships at this time.
…In an era of attention-seeking recruits and spotlight-craving parents, the Manning camp has gone dark. Coaches interested in extending a scholarship have been politely told not to bother. “We just say, ‘There’s no offer to give because there’s no offer to receive,’” says Stewart, 42, in his 14th year as Newman’s coach and a teammate of Cooper’s and Peyton’s in the 1990s.
Even even declined to speak to LSU and Coach O (remember Arch plays in Louisana)
Similarly, college coaches continue to try to find ways around the Mannings’ recruiting embargo. Take last summer, when Arch and his high school team won a seven-on-seven tournament on LSU’s campus. Tigers coach Ed Orgeron and his offensive staff spent much of the event schmoozing the Manning family. “It was unlike anything I’ve witnessed at a seven-on-seven tournament,” says Shea Dixon, a 247Sports recruiting reporter covering LSU and Louisiana. “I haven’t seen LSU coaches put that attention on a senior, let alone a kid who just finished eighth grade.”
The Tigers planned to offer Arch a scholarship, Dixon says, before they learned the likely reply: There is no offer to give because there is no offer to receive.
And an NFL draft said the following:
“When it’s all said and done, he’s going to be the most highly recruited player out of the state of Louisiana,” says Mike Detillier, a longtime NFL draft analyst based in New Orleans. “It’s going to be a tsunami of recruiting like we’ve never seen.”

Pretty sweet story all around. Arch Manning seems to be all about football. Or his family is protecting him from the fame and amount of crazy stuff that could come with being one of the most highly touted players in the history of high school football. I wonder what is in the DNA of the Manning’s that if you are born in that family you have a rocket for an arm. For me personally, I don’t have a rocket of an arm nor could I have. Last time I went to speed pitch at a baseball game I threw a alarming 38 MPH fastball. So this stuff does come somewhat natural. Can’t wait to watch this kid play.
