Arch Manning Makes CBS Sports’ List of Highly-Rated Recruits Meeting the Hype

While Arch Manning is one of the most-hyped prospects in college football history, many experts believe that the Longhorns’ quarterback is beginning to live up to his name.

Manning was recently included in a list of ten prospects quickly meeting the hype from CBS Sports’ Andrew Ivins.


“If you guessed Arch Manning as that very famous redshirt freshman, congratulations — DM me for a free month’s subscription over at 247Sports,” Ivins said. “And what a difference 12 of those months made for Arch. Many ridiculously labeled the then-freshman as a bust following a dismal performance in last year’s spring game (5 of 13 passing for 30 yards), our No. 1-ranked prospect in the class of 2023 has quickly turned into the toast of the town for the burnt orange.”

Ivins went on to discuss Manning’s drastic turnaround in the 2024 Texas Spring Game, where he put on a dominant performance.

“Manning stole the show in this year’s spring game, completing 19 of 25 passes for 355 yards and three touchdowns,” Ivins continued. “Two of those scores were 75-yard bombs where Manning pushed the ball well into the deeper third. Quinn Ewers is undoubtedly the starter for Texas after leading the Longhorns to the College Football Playoff, but Manning’s performance reinforced that he’s exactly who we thought he was two years ago: an elite processor with a prototypical frame that can make all the throws. Too bad no one will be able to play with him in the EA Sports College Football 25 video game. “

Despite Manning electing to turn down the opportunity to be included in the upcoming college football video game, he remains one of the biggest names in all of college football.
