Manning even used his first tweet to make the announcement, on a verified Twitter account with a bio that simply says "high school student."
Texas coach Steve Sarkisian also reacted to Manning's announcement, first retweeting his new quarterback recruit then writing "All Gas, No Brakes!!!"
Manning is a nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning, a grandson of Archie Manning and son of former Ole Miss wide receiver Cooper Manning.

"He made this decision on his own. This was his decision to make," said Nelson Stewart, Manning's high school coach.
Stewart said that, from the start, the family stressed Arch Manning having an "old-school, 1970s type recruitment."
