No prospect is going to be coveted more in the 2023 cycle than quarterback Arch Manning. The composite five-star will be making college visits throughout the month of June. Alabama, Clemson, SMU, and Texas will all have their opportunities to impress.

Running back commit Rueben Owens has been going after Manning the most. The two met with each other in New Orleans, while Owens once again mentioned the quarterback after a track and field meet. Texas’ sole member of the 2023 class is making sure the top players in the country are interested in Austin.

On Friday, a current Texas player got in on the action. True freshman tight end Gunnar Helm posted a picture with Manning on Twitter after a workout. The two flashed a ‘Hook ’em’, letting fans overreact as to what it means.

Helm was a player who stood out to Steve Sarkisian during spring practice. Even in a jam-packed tight end room, the former three-star prospect could sneak his way up the depth chart throughout the year.

As for Manning, his recruitment will be drawn out for quite a while. He and his family have been through the process multiple times, all being high-stakes recruitments. Academics will play a role as well.

Sarkisian built a relationship with Manning going back to his time in Tuscaloosa. If any non-SEC schools are going to be in the race, it is Clemson and Texas.
