Football fans, media personalities, and schools are anxiously waiting for the class of 2023's No. 1 prospect Arch Manning to make his decision on where he will choose to continue his football career.

However, some fans seem to dislike the idea of Manning joining the Crimson Tide because of his "drama," "hype circus," or that he "only wants a ring and quick fame," which is far from the truth of who he really is.

The La., native visited the top two programs in the country the past two weekends. There are very few pictures of him in Athens, Ga., and two from his visit to Tuscaloosa, Ala., One came from fellow prospect Olaus Alinen's Instagram story, and the other was in front of the famous wall of champions- no official photos, quotes, anything. He has kept to himself this entire process and will more than likely continue to do so.

He is a private person. He does not have a Twitter account and has a private Instagram with only five photos uploaded. Manning does very few interviews and doesn't release any type of promotion for himself or his personal brand.

Look, I understand the Manning loathing. As a Birmingham, Ala., native, born in the third week of October, growing up in a Dallas Cowboys household, and as a die-hard New England Patriots fan, I'm personally not fond of the Manning brothers either.

But, Arch has absolutely nothing to do with the past success of his uncles.

Arch Manning is not an issue, nor is he full of drama. He is a 17-year-old kid with a famous last name who is just trying to make a decision for his future... just like most seniors deciding on colleges.
