College football recruiting notebook: Georgia wants Arch Manning, breaking down Big 12 expansion and more

There is plenty to talk about in college football recruiting this week, with reports of the NCAA's oversight committee potentially increasing the 25-player signing limit, Big 12 expansion and what it means for recruiting, top players releasing top lists and some game atmospheres helping in recruiting.

All of that and more is discussed in this week's recruiting notebook, starting with Georgia fans' attempt to sway quarterback Arch Manning to Athens.

Georgia wants Arch Manning (and so does everyone else)

Manning is one of the most sought-after recruits in the 2023 class -- and not just because he's Peyton and Eli's nephew.

Manning, the No. 2 recruit overall and the top quarterback in his class, already has offers from Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas, among others. He hasn't said much about his recruitment and is now starting to take visits.

So it's a big deal when coaches can get him on campus the way Georgia did this past weekend for its game against South Carolina. Fans knew he'd be there and went the extra mile to let him know they want him to choose their school, painting their backs to spell out "We want Arch."

The red carpet was rolled out for Manning, but he still has other trips to take, including Alabama on Oct. 2, Texas on Oct. 16, Ole Miss on Oct. 23 and Clemson on Oct. 30.
