Some speculated that, if not for Arch having that Manning name on the back of his jersey, he would not be garnering as much attention as he has this summer.

Yet, Arch had his first real opportunity heading into the fall to prove some of the doubters wrong and really show why he is the nation’s top recruit for the 2023 cycle. Arch and Isidore Newman took on De La Salle on the night of Aug. 26.

And it didn’t take long for Arch to show why he is the nation’s top-rated recruit for the 2023 cycle.
