Arch Manning may surpass LeBron James as the most hyped high school athlete of all-time. But unlike LeBron, the Isidore Newman quarterback will be going to college before going pro. And his reported visit list has gotten a lot of attention in college football world.

Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports reported on Monday that Arch Manning is slated to visit Clemson, SMU, Texas, Alabama, and Georgia this June. He also reportedly wants to visit Stanford, USC, Ohio State, UNC and Virginia among others.

Fans of all of those schools, along with Ole Miss, LSU and others are already crossing their fingers. Ole Miss fans in particular are hoping he picks up where his uncle Eli and grandfather Archie left off by joining the Rebels:

Ohio State fans are intrigued by the idea of Manning joining them so he can potentially throw to Buckeyes wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. His uncle Peyton Manning created one of the greatest passing combinations of all-time with Marvin Harrison Sr. on the Indianapolis Colts.

Still others believe that Arch will be a prime target for Texas and new head coach Steve Sarkisian. Alabama and Nick Saban are also an obvious contender for the young Manning:

Arch Manning is a five-star recruit and the No. 3 overall prospect in the country per 247Sports. He is the No. 1 pro-style QB in the nation, and the No. 1 prospect from the state of Louisiana.

But in some ways he's already surpassed his famous uncles, Peyton and Eli. He became his school's varsity starter as a freshman and boasts greater athleticism than either of them.

Who do you believe is the top contender for Arch Manning?
