Kevin Durant had an exciting three-word response to Arch Manning’s decision to commit to the University of Texas.
“Let’s go,” Durant, who played college basketball in Texas, tweeted Manning after the quarterback revealed he would join the Longhorns in 2023 after graduating from Isidore Newman High School in Las Vegas. New Orleans.
On Thursday, Manning – the nephew of quarterback legends Peyton and Eli Manning – used his first-ever tweet to share a photo of himself tossing a cut-off Texas shirt, writing, “Committed to University from Texas. #HookEm.
Manning announced his decision following one of the most high-profile recruiting drives that included visits to Georgia, Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Virginia and Texas.
The 18-year-old high school prodigy kept his recruiting process mostly private, which added to the anticipation of his decision. His verified Instagram and Twitter accounts contain only one message each and include the same biography: “High school student”.
Manning has not yet taken part in the flourishing business of name, image and likeness which many young athletes have joined and secure lucrative branding opportunities.
In three years for the Isidore Newman School, Manning threw for over 6,300 yards and 81 touchdowns, as well as 19 rushing scores.
Durant, who played one season for the Longhorns before being drafted second overall in the 2007 NBA draft, is currently embroiled in drama this offseason. This week, reports surfaced that he could become unhappy and demand a trade if Kyrie Irving leaves.
Irving has until June 29 to get next year’s $36 million option.
