The most high-profile college football recruit in the nation is class of 2023 five-star quarterback Arch Manning, who has plenty of game to go with his famous name.

Manning could attend any school in the country. So far, there's been rampant speculation about which school he'll ultimately pick, but the New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman star has still managed to keep an air of mystery around his recruitment.

Recruiting experts seem to think he'll go to Alabama or Texas; his fellow high school prospects think he's leaning toward Georgia. Meanwhile, as the hype surrounding him goes through the roof, Manning remains lowkey.

"Arch is truly just wanting to find the best fit for him. He is a meat and potatoes kind of kid," Manning's high school coach Nelson Stewart told Ari Wasserman of The Athletic.

In that sense, Arch has a lot in common with his famous uncles, particularly the understated Eli. Football seems to matter way more than the notoriety and popularity.

That's a good approach to have as he closes out his high school career and eventually enters college as perhaps the most hyped recruit in the history of the sport.
