Rumors are circulating about Arch Manning’s future in college football for 2024. The Texas Longhorns freshman quarterback has not seen the field in his first year under head coach Steve Sarkisian.

No one expected Manning to win the starting job in September, as Texas had a top-five NFL quarterback prospect for the 2024 draft, Quinn Ewers, back under center this season. But Ewers suffered an AC sprain against Houston that had the Longhorns bring in backup redshirt freshman Maalik Murphy as the starter in their previous two contests.
Murphy, who was a four-star recruit for the 2022 class, has underwhelmed since he was asked to step in for Ewers. He has a 55.7 completion percentage, three touchdowns, and three interceptions this season. Many Texas fans were calling for Manning to come into the Kansas State game.
Sarkisian opted to stick with Murphy. And he’s planning to keep Murphy as the starter until Ewers can return later this season.
College football fans speculate on Arch Manning’s future
Football fans and pundits think Manning might transfer out of a loaded quarterback room this winter in order to get playing time on the field. It’s telling that Sarkisian hasn’t allowed Manning to play a snap since Ewers has been injured.
Fans took to X to speculate where Manning could transfer. Here are the best takes on Manning possibly transferring from Texas after being a third-string quarterback this fall.
I keep seeing a lot of Arch Manning transfer talk and I have no idea if there’s anything to it. Kevin Sumlin played Kyler Murray before he was ready and he ultimately lost him anyhow. Sark should stick to his guns. If Arch decides to leave b/c of that, you have to live with it.

I don’t think Texas should be so excited they won the Arch Manning sweepstakes.
Have Ewers and now with Murphy playing well, when would Arch actually get on the field? He isn’t gonna sit until his Jr season.
I think he will transfer out.
Get your NIL money ready, other schools
