Nick Saban made a subtle recruiting pitch to Arch Manning on the Manning Cast last night

Nick Saban showed up on the Manning Cast and dropped subtle comments about Arch Manning.


Arch Manning is the hottest recruit in college football. He looks like a pro-style QB and he's part of football's royal family. It seems like he has everything to become the next great Manning QB.

We live in an age where recruiting has become the focal point of college football. Players get their roses before they play a down of meaningful football. Imagine being 16-years-old and seeing this while on a recruiting visit?

Every major program is putting a full-court press on Arch. Lane Kiffin is acting like a high school teenager trying to make someone jealous by dropping subtle hints on social media.

Now, the greatest coach of all time has thrown his hat in the ring. Nick Saban showed up on the Manning Cast last night on Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli.

How can other coaches compete with Saban in recruiting? Some schools are doing body paint and weird social media tactics. Saban is going right to the heart of the Manning family, subtly recruiting Arch in front of a national crowd. He didn't lock up a verbal agreement from Arch, but you already know Alabama is going to be in consideration.

Knowing the Manning history, I think it's safe to say Arch will end up at an SEC school. Will it be Bama? Maybe Texas with them coming over to the SEC? Or does he follow the family legacy and go to Ole Miss? All I know is the college football world is going to be closely paying attention to every move he makes for the next two years.
