247Sports’ Cooper Petagna breaks down Arch Manning’s No. 1 overall rating

·1 min read

Since five-star quarterback Arch Manning announced his commitment to Texas, many discussions have centered around whether or not his talents are worthy of being tabbed the No. 1 overall prospect in the country for the 2023 class.

Some believe Manning’s last name is the sole reason he’s rated that high, but other national recruiting analysts feel strongly that the New Orleans native is the best player in the class.

On3 Sports and 247Sports updated their player ratings this week and Manning retained his spot as the No. 1 player in the class. Cooper Petagna of 247Sports noted that five-star quarterback Dante Moore made a late push for the spot, but believes Manning still has the most potential of anyone in the country.

Petagna also mentioned that Manning doesn’t need to attend quarterback camps over the summer to prove his worth as he had 740 passing attempts over three high schools seasons, more than any other quarterback.

Manning has certainly already made his presence felt in Texas’ 2023 recruiting class and has taken on the role as a vocal leader to sway other top prospects to the Forty Acres.
