ATHENS — The No. 1 recruit in the 2023 signing class has chosen the University of Texas over Georgia.

Arch Manning announced the commitment on his Twitter account on Thursday with the first and only Tweet from his account.

The nephew of Super Bowl champions and NFL Greats Peyton and Eli Manning, and the son of Cooper Manning and grandson of Ole Miss Great Archie Manning, Arch Manning has been considered one of the most premier prospects in years.

Arch Manning plays at New Orleans Isidore Newman High School where he passed for 5,731 yards and 72 touchdowns through his first three seasons entering his season campaign this fall.

Manning visited Georgia on the first weekend in June and the Bulldogs were almost universally considered the leaders for his services.

Visits to Alabama and then Texas, last weekend, followed, and the Longhorns were able to sway Manning away from championship aspirations with the Bulldogs and into the Texas rebuild under second-year head coach Steve Sarkisian.

The Longhorns are coming off a 5-7 season in Sarkisian’s first year leading the program that included an embarrassing loss to undermanned Kansas.

Georgia, meanwhile, has built arguably the deepest and most talented offensive line room in the nation and features former NFL coordinator Todd Monken.

Indeed, all seemed well when the Bulldogs granted Monken and raise to $2 million a year, seemingly ensuring the Manning Camp their marquee play-caller would be in place for the foreseeable future.

The Georgia quarterback room appears solid entering into the offseason with third-year quarterback and former Alabama commit Carson Beck still in the fold along with second-year quarterback and former Oklahoma commit Brock Vandagriff.

UGA signed in-state high school star Gunner Stockton in its most recent signing class, and while Stockton doesn’t have the prototypical size of Beck (6-4, 215) or Vandagriff (6-3, 205), he has a big arm and good mobility.
