College football is filled with stars, including many highly touted freshmen.
No freshman is more highly-regarded than Arch Manning, nephew of NFL legends Peyton and Eli Manning.
Due to the success of her family members, Manning’s career has been analyzed under a microscope from a young age.
Manning will be a freshman at the University of Texas in 2023, and he is already being recruited for NIL sponsorship.
In a recent article by Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk, he highlighted Manning’s recent interactions with his grandfather.
Manning’s grandfather said, “When you become a player and you start out you can take the money.”
Head coach Steve Sarkeesian says Arch Manning made zero money to play QB at Texas.

Despite Manning’s background and family history, Quinn Evers would remain Texas’ starter.
Evers took the world by storm last season, putting together a remarkable freshman campaign before being hit by injury.
Texas was at the top of the college football world, only to fall a few pegs after the injury to Evers.
Manning will need to earn his role on the team, whether it’s taking the job away from Evers, or if he sits for a few years, waiting for an opportunity.
Regardless, it appears that his family won’t let him be influenced by money, at least while he remains a backup.
It’s only a matter of time before Manning gets his shot as a starter.
Until that happens, Manning will continue to play as a more athletic and stronger build than his two uncles.
How high would Manning’s ceiling be, knowing her family history and her measurements?
