Arch Manning, the top quarterback from the 2023 recruiting class, will unofficially visit Ole Miss this Saturday to watch the Rebels’ game against the LSU Tigers. The timing of this visit is perfect considering Arch’s uncle, Eli Manning, will have his jersey retired by Ole Miss this weekend.

With Arch in town this weekend, Ole Miss fans will keep an eye out for any potential activity involving the five-star quarterback and the Rebels’ coaching staff.

During an appearance on ESPN’s SEC Nation this Saturday morning, Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin was asked what his recruiting pitch is for top recruits.

Kiffin and Tebow didn’t mention Arch Manning because they’re not supposed to discuss specific prospects while on air. However, Kiffin did reveal what his pitch is for elite recruits.

“I think it is neat what we’ve done over time and that really is not have a system that players have to fit into,” Kiffin said, via 247Sports. “We find the dynamic players, usually the quarterback, a receiver, or Derrick Henry, Amari Cooper, and then we say ‘ok, what can we do to feature them that year.’ And we’ve done it with our quarterbacks and that’s why our offense looks different by whatever quarterback is playing. So, if a quarterback comes that doesn’t run as much, we’ll do great with him, put him in a position to win the Heisman.”

There are currently five teams being linked to Manning. Fortunately for Ole Miss, it’s listed as a finalist for the five-star quarterback’s services.

Kiffin in particular seemed to be targeted with items, with some Vols fans still remembering his acrimonious departure more than a decade ago.

Earlier this week, ESPN reporter Mark Schlabach said Manning could announce his decision in the spring or summer of 2022.

“From what people have told me around Isidore Newman, I think he’ll wait for the coaching carousel to settle down after this season,” Schlabach said. “And then go out and make his official visits and come up with a decision late next spring or summer. But certainly Texas, Georgia and Alabama seem to think they’re in a pretty good position.”

Ole Miss will certainly have a chance to strengthen its connection with Manning this weekend.

Peyton Manning's legacy defined by absurd production, legendary preparation .
Peyton Manning entered the NFL with as much pressure as almost any player in the game’s modern history. The son of a former NFL quarterback, Manning had a brilliant four-year career at Tennessee but was branded as not being able to win the proverbial big one. Although he edged out Ryan Leaf for the top spot in the 1998 draft, many at the time felt Leaf had the higher ceiling as a player. In his brilliant 18-year career — matching the uniform number he chose to honor Johnny Unitas — Manning became one of the most decorated quarterbacks of all time with the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos.
