Texas Football adds commitment that could help with Arch Manning
Texas Football hosted QB Arch Five-Star Manning over the weekend and also landed the commitment of one of his high school teammates. Will this help the Longhorns?
Five-star QB Manning Arch has been busy making official visits and last weekend visited the Texas football program.
With the Longhorns becoming one of Arch Manning’s two favorites with Georgia, it’s hard to say when Manning will make up his mind and even harder to say which way he’s leaning.
Georgia seemed to impress him earlier with their official visit and the Bulldogs have a lot to sell any rookie after winning the national championship and boasting among the most talented rosters in all of college football.
However, Texas football has remained at the forefront of Manning’s recruiting for a reason. He visited the Longhorns as much as any program, including Georgia. He has been to both schools four times, as well as to Alabama four times.
Still, there were no crystal ball showings and Texas football still holds a slight advantage according to the On3 prediction machine that gives the Longhorns a 50% chance of making it. Georgia is at 44%.
It’s hard to say if the visit this weekend helped. It looks like Manning should know what he needs to know about each program at this point. Now he just has to decide.
Could recent Texas commitment help Arch Manning?
One thing that could help texas football is the Commitment on Sunday of Newman Isidore teammate Will Randlea three-star tight end ranked No. 499 overall in the On3 Consensus Ranking.
Randle is a solid commitment, regardless of his ties to Manning. It has the option of flexing into the slot or from the outside. He’s 6-foot-4, 220 pounds and was a reliable target for Manning in the passing game as a tight end and even an H-back.
Randle has also played defensively on the ball and is a solid athlete. He plays basketball, which is always a nice thing in a tight end and he has upside potential too.
Either way, the title for many is a committed teammate of Arch Manning in Texas. Manning isn’t going to commit to the Longhorns just because a former teammate does. It might help him feel more familiar.
Manning seems to be very high on the coaching staff and the opportunity to build his own legacy in Texas and maybe the addition of Randle makes it a bit easier to commit to Texas football.
At the end of the day though, this race still seems too close to call.
