Georgia football is riding a wave of momentum like never before with a CFP Championship and record NFL Draft class in its wake as it makes a run at one of the most celebrated recruits of the millennium.
Arch Manning, nephew of Super Bowl champion quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Eli Manning and SEC and New Orleans quarterback legend Archie Manning, begins spring drills this week
To boot, Smart and Monken have made it clear that sixth-year quarterback Stetson Bennett will maintain starting duties for the Bulldogs this season.
The fact there is no QB competition in Athens bodes well for Manning, who presumably would not be competing against a quarterback with a great deal of game experience in 2023.
Such conjecture has been widely discussed by those who follow Georgia football and recognize the dynamics involved in Manning’s recruitment.
The process is much more complex than it was the last time a Manning quarterback was coveted in the collegiate ranks.
“When Peyton, Eli and Cooper went through it, it really didn’t turn up until the spring before their senior year,” Archie Manning said. “They might have been getting letters but with Arch, it started in the seventh grade.
“I guess it still comes down to the end of just trying to pick a place … I know Arch, he wants to where he’s going to be happy as a student, too.”
First things first, Arch Manning has a senior year of high school football to prepare for, and that starts this week.
