Earlier Tuesday afternoon, 247Sports college football recruiting analyst Carl Reed was asked about Arch Manning.

When talking about the five-star quarterback, Reed named the two "best fits" for the No. 1 overall recruit. He thinks Alabama and Georgia offer the best opportunity for Manning to become the first member of the family to win a national title.

“I think you gotta look at Georgia and Alabama because he can do something that none of the Mannings have done before. He can win the SEC and win the national championship.”

Of course, it didn't take long for fans to start reacting to the news. Some believe the Texas Longhorns are still in play for the prized quarterback recruit.

"Fun video ... @BBrockermeyerFW: 'I think Texas is the play,'" said a different 247Sports analyst.

Fans seem to believe what Reed is saying. "Coach reed the gawd," one fan said.

Others seem to believe the star quarterback is headed to the SEC, it's just a matter of which SEC power he'll be going to.

"Yes your guess is correct. It is UGA or Alabama!!" one fan said.

Arch Manning is viewed as one of the top quarterback recruits in recent memory. It's not surprise, then, that most major programs have offered him a scholarship.

However, he's reportedly down to just six programs: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and Texas.

Where will he play his college ball?
