Arch Manning, considered the top prospect in the 2023 college football recruiting class, announced his commitment to Texas on Thursday, sending social media into a frenzy with reactions.

Manning, the son of Cooper Manning and nephew of Peyton and Eli, chose the Longhorns over Alabama and Georgia in the end. Manning is entering his senior year at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, Louisiana.

It's a huge get for head coach Steve Sarkisian, who is entering his second season at Texas.

Does this mean Texas is "Back?" Not yet, according to oddsmakers. The Longhorns are +5000 at Caesars to win the national championship this season, which of course won't involve Manning. When he does arrive on campus, he'll find a quarterback room with another former No. 1-ranked QB in Quinn Ewers.

Maalik Murphy is also expected to be on the roster this fall. Murphy was a 4-star quarterback prospect in the Class of 2022 out of California.

But we aren't here to discuss Manning's impact on the future of Texas football or what the Longhorns will look like this year. We're just here to see how social media reacted to the big news of the day in the sport.

Recruiting Reactions 

Is this just the start for Texas in 2023?

Obviously, a massive win for Texas coach Steve Sarkisian in landing Arch Manning. He’s the only QB offered by the Horns in 2023 class. The other major recruits that could follow may be enormous.

Will he stick with Texas?

Arch Manning was looking at Texas and #UGA.

But I doubt UGA will stop recruiting him. Kirby doesn't burn bridges because kids sometimes decommit. Plus you have to recruit them continuously just in case they wind up in the transfer portal.

Six months until signing day.

Arch Manning previously said he wouldn't sign any #NIL deals until he commits to a school.

Looks like he's now open for business.
