The new EA Sports college football video game is set to release in just a few days. While it initially seemed that Texas Longhorns young star quarterback Arch Manning would not be among the players included in the game, but it seems that he will be in the game, after all.

On Tuesday, Arch Manning announced on social media that he would indeed be included in the game, sharing a video promotion for the upcoming video game that included his uncle Eli Manning.

“I’m IN the game,” Arch Manning said in a post on X, the social media website that was formerly known as Twitter.

This comes a few months after college football reporter Anwar Richardson reported that Arch Manning had chosen not to opt into the video game, saying that the quarterback “is focused on playing football on the field.”

Arch clearly has changed his mind, and he made reference to that previous report in the video he shared on social media. In the video, Eli Manning reads a play call to his younger nephew before the camera switches to Arch.

“Are you sure about this?” Arch asked Eli.

“Absolutely! This is the best way to focus on football,” Manning said in the video.

It’s a rather shocking announcement considering he was not expected to be in the game, but fans will undoubtedly be excited.
