Texas' Arch Manning will not opt to appear in EA Sports college football  video game: report | Fox News

On Monday, Texas quarterback Arch Manning announced his ambitions for the next college football video game.

Manning, unlike the other 10,000-plus players in college football, is apparently sitting out this round. According to Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods, he is focused on real-life football.

“Several sources have told me that Texas redshirt quarterback Arch Manning would not participate in EA Sports College Football 25. Richardson wrote, “I’m told Arch is focused on playing football on the field.”

The revelation has sparked a flurry of debate over the distraction he has created for himself, but an ESPN report provides some insight into why he will not play in the game.

According to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach, Manning’s decision to opt out was not motivated by money, as has been widely assumed. It was actually owing to his position on the depth chart.

“Manning, who attempted only five passes in one game as Quinn Ewers’ backup in 2023, wanted to wait until ‘he was the guy’ at Texas, the source said,” Schlabach stated in an email.

For those who are doubtful about Manning’s financial status, it is worth mentioning that, despite being regarded as one of the most marketable players in college sports, he has not accepted any NIL money during his brief collegiate career. His only NIL contract was with Panini America to sell his exclusive trading card for over $100.00, which he donated to charity.

Archie, Peyton, and Eli Manning are all members of the Manning family, with Manning being the youngest. Despite being the third quarterback on the depth chart and only attempting five passes in his rookie season, he will probably take over for Texas in 2025 when Quinn Ewers departs for the NFL.

He would have received $600 and a copy of the game if he had chosen to participate in it.
