Arch Manning, the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2023, verbally committed to the Texas Longhorns Thursday. 

First of all let me tell you that Arch Manning is an American football player.

Arch Manning is a member of the Manning football family. His father's name is Cooper. Arch Manning his oldest son.

In his freshman season, Arch Manning was the varsity starter at quarterback, making him the first freshman quarterback to start Newman's season opener in at least 40 years.

Arch Manning has long been considered the top player in the class of 2023, the family remained intent on attempting to keep his recruitment as low-key as possible.

This was his decision to make," said Nelson Stewart, Manning's high school coach. "I'm just happy he's where he needs to be.

 He's an 18-year old kid. There was a lot on his shoulders. Took his time and showed a lot of maturity.

 I'm just so proud of him," Stewart said. "Hope he can rest and enjoy his senior year with his friends and take that next step. There's a huge ceiling in front of him."
