New Orleans (La.) Isidore Newman five-star junior quarterback Arch Manning is ready for his first college visit of the summer. His father Cooper tells 247Sports the family will be at Clemson this weekend, arriving on Saturday.
The Tigers have been one of the programs recruiting the 6-foot-4, 210-pound Manning the longest. Manning's brother Heid, an offensive lineman, will also camp at Clemson.
“They made that early connection,” Isidore Newman head coach Nelson Stewart said. “Brandon Streeter was one of the first coaches I remember talking to. Their approach has been authentic. They’ve taken the time, especially Coach Streeter in getting to know him, not barraging him, checking in. I know one of his favorite Zooms was with the entire offensive staff one morning about a month or so ago. He really enjoyed it. He even left his notes, he borrowed one of my notebooks and what he writes down is staggering what he sees.
“(Arch) really has an interest (in Clemson). Their culture is awesome. Him and Cooper had a really good FaceTime with Dabo (Swinney) one night. They’ve taken a good, patient approach.”
Future June visits for class of 2023's No. 1 QB include SMU, Texas, Alabama and Georgia. Manning also wants to visit the likes of Stanford, USC, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Virginia, North Carolina and so many more down the road. He’s been to LSU and Ole Miss in the past.
