Five-Star QB Arch Manning comes to the Texas TCU game

Isidore Newman, five-star quarterback and Texas commit Arch Manning officially arrived at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium with his father Cooper Manning as the Longhorns attempt to defeat undefeated No. 4 TCU.

Texas hosts its biggest weekend of the year tonight with several five-star and over two dozen four-star prospects in attendance for the primetime matchup in Austin.

One such visitor is Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle Five Star Tight End Duce Robinson which one source told Horns247 had been “almost inseparable from Manning since his arrival at the stadium.”



The weekend trip marks Manning’s second visit to his future home this season after visiting Texas for the Oct. 15 home game against Iowa State.

247Sports National Recruiting Analyst Cooper Petagna had this to say about Manning in his scouting report on the five-star quarterback.

“At 6ft 4 and 215lbs, has an ideal physique and growth potential to add another 10-15lbs to his physique at the next level. Displays above average athleticism and reasonable mobility as a runner, increasing his fast overalls every season for the last three years.

“Seems to have good pocket awareness/presence and the ability to extend plays with his feet. Has enough mobility as a runner to have to respect him in situational down and distance areas. Shows clean feet in the pocket while showing good foot speed and game pace in his drop.

“Displays excellent arm talent and shows ability to pocket every throw on the field. Demonstrates ability to propel the ball around the field and play at speed. Excels as an intermediate passer, demonstrating the ability to consistently deliver the ball accurately and on time while playing with anticipation. Throws an exceptionally deep ball, demonstrates excellent ball touch and ball placement that allow him to throw open to his receivers .

“Can sometimes rush under pressure, affecting his accuracy in short-to-middle part of the field when making decisions. Will need to keep improving to make the ‘right’ decision when under pressure as he can force himself to make unnecessary passes when his clock speeds up.
