Future college (and maybe NFL) defenses better look out: This Manning has wheels.

The next generation of Manning is the top overall player in the 2023 high school class, per 247Sports. His combination of size, passing ability and surprising athleticism have scouts gushing about his ability to step right in and star two years from now at the college level.

Georgia's Kirby Smart was among the people in attendance for the Friday night showcase broadcasted on ESPNU.

While the game was not the best showing for Manning overall—the undefeated Berkley Prep dominated throughout, and Manning threw an interception—his scrambling ability was on full display, and he flashed with the occasional tough throw.
