Arch Manning, a 5-star quarterback and the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning, has scheduled a visit with Texas between June 17-19, per Keegan Pope of On3.com.  

Pope added that Manning is currently focused on the Longhorns alongside SEC powerhouses Alabama and Georgia.

"I'm trying to get there," Manning told Sam Spiegelman of On3 earlier this month regarding his pending decision. "I want to get through this spring with this new offense and new coaches (at Newman), so after spring I'm gonna see about the official visits. It's kind of getting closer. I don't really have a point yet, but I guess it's kind of narrowing stuff down. I'm looking forward to (making a decision) either before the season or during the season or after the season."

Manning also left open the possibility of visiting with Florida and LSU during that interview. 

"The visit to Austin, we got to see practice and see what it’s all about," he said of his first Texas visit. "We sat in the quarterback meeting. It was fun to see how they interacted, and I’m excited to see what they can do this year." 

He also called Alabama "a machine and everyone knows it" and said that Georgia has "athletes all over the field" and that Athens was "probably the best college town I’ve ever been to."

The 6'4" and 215-pound Manning is considered the top overall player in the Class of 2023, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Gabe Brooks of the 247 Sports described him as a "natural pocket passer with pro-style feel, but good functional athlete with terrific off-schedule instincts and playmaking ability" who has a "one-of-a-kind quarterback pedigree." 

When your grandfather and two of your uncles were NFL quarterbacks, yes, you have an extremely unique background in the game. 

Manning, who plays his high school ball for Isidore Newman in New Orleans, will have to craft his own narrative and legacy. One major part of that story will be where he plays his college ball next.
