Rivals.com – Fact or Fiction: Ole Miss will emerge as contender for Arch Manning


Rivals nationwide recruiting director Adam Gorney together with nationwide recruiting analyst Sam Spiegelman and Mark Passwaters of AggieYell.com sort out matters in recruiting and decide whether or not or not they imagine every assertion.

1. Ole Miss will develop into a critical contender for Arch Manning by the
time his junior season begins.

Arch Manning (Sam Spiegelman)

Gorney’s take: FACT. Lane Kiffin goes to have a significant alternative to impress Arch Manning and his household quickly and never solely paint the image of how he’s been profitable with Matt Corral but in addition quarterbacks at Alabama and different stops in his teaching profession. Everyone knows Kiffin works properly with gamers at that place and so the Rebels can have an opportunity if issues go properly in Oxford. The household connections are apparent. Do I believe Arch Manning finally ends up at Ole Miss? No, not at this level, as Clemson, Texas and others have jumped out entrance but it surely’s nonetheless early and Manning’s and Kiffin’s relationship is simply getting began.

Spiegelman’s take: FACT. Ole Miss would be the seventh go to for Manning and his household this summer time as they bought a first-hand have a look at the entire faculties with reliable possibilities of touchdown the five-star quarterback. Is there a pecking order? Presumably sure, however the Mannings hold Arch’s pursuits near the vest. Transferring ahead, Manning will attend video games all through the autumn. At that time we’ll achieve higher readability on which faculties are really in competition.


2. Keithian Alexander is just about a lock to Texas A&M.

Gorney’s take: FICTION. I do agree that Texas A&M seems to be just like the chief for Keithian Alexander and his relationship with Elijah Robinson and others on employees will go a great distance. However in the case of the five-star defensive sort out, I don’t assume something is near a lock at this level. Alabama goes to proceed to make a run at him and the Crimson Tide might be inside placing distance. There have been lots of explanation why Georgia Alexander within the first place and people might be revisited. If I needed to decide right now, I’d say Large Bear results in School Station however there might be a protracted strategy to go.

Passwaters’ take: FACT. Effectively, we’re coping with high-stakes recruiting within the NIL age, so is something a “lock”? However, compelled to say, sure, he undoubtedly appears set on A&M. He is taken visits since he confirmed up in School Station and promptly decommitted from Georgia and there is been no indication that something has modified. The A&M commits are continuously in his ear and it does not even appear to be there are all that many groups – perhaps UGA and Alabama – making an attempt to sway him. However some thought he would have already dedicated, so there’s that little bit of uncertainty there. All the identical, in case you’re looking the Bear, you’d moderately be in A&M’s place than anybody else’s.



3. Chris Marshall is essentially the most underrated receiver within the 2022 class.

Gorney’s take: FICTION. Guys who I believe are too low on the receiver place: Ohio State commit Kyion Grayes, Penn State pledge Kaden Saunders, four-star Shazz Preston and Chris Marshall is unquestionably one other one. His current basketball highlights the place he’s a human highlight-reel dunking over individuals is admittedly spectacular. And it makes me assume he deserves to be greater particularly after he was so spectacular at a Pylon occasion in Arizona this offseason. However I’ve my eye totally on Nashville (Tenn.) Pearl-Cohn’s Barion Brown. He’s below the radar, doesn’t discuss a lot however his sport is excellent, he’s a high goal for a lot of SEC packages at receiver and though he’s No. 10 on the place it is likely to be too low.

Spiegelman’s take: FACT. Effectively, he is one in every of a number of receivers throughout the nation with reliable factors about being underrated. Evan Stewart is likely to be too low at No. 7 and gamers like Shazz Preston and Kaden Saunders have been distinctive all through the offseason. Chris Marshall, nevertheless, suits that invoice. Marshall is a two-sport standout that shortly discovered his footing on the soccer subject. He is a verified downfield playmaker who creates 1-on-1 mismatches together with his athleticism, his means to out-rebound defensive backs within the crimson zone and his sturdy fingers. At No. 18 nationally, he would possibly nonetheless be a bit under-ranked.
