The top teams for five-star quarterback Arch Manning have been Texas, Alabama and Georgia for quite some time now, though the Longhorns appear to be separating themselves from the pack. However, Manning told On3 Sports that he plans to visit LSU and Florida soon on Monday.
In case fans didn’t know, Manning is related to the family that produced three successful NFL quarterbacks. He’s the son of Cooper, the nephew of Peyton and Eli and the grandson of Archie.
The Gators have been mentioned in Manning’s recruitment since head coach Billy Napier took over the program but has never made it to the Swamp for a visit.
The news of him telling On3 that he will visit Florida is huge because Napier will finally have the chance to roll out the red carpet for Manning. Once he gets on campus, anything can happen. The Gators will certainly try to blow him away so that they can be included in his top schools along with Texas, Georgia and Alabama.
