Texas redshirt backup quarterback Arch Manning has apparently changed his decision on his status for the upcoming 'EA Sports College Football 25' video game.

Manning, 18, who was previously reported to have opted out of being included, appeared alongside his uncle, two-time Super Bowl champion Eli Manning, in an advertisement for the long-awaited game, which included the caption, "I'm IN the game."

In March, beat reporter Anwar Richardson reported that Manning opted out of being included in the upcoming 'EA Sports College Football 25' video game in order to be "focused on playing football on the field."

"Multiple people have told me Texas redshirt quarterback Arch Manning will not opt into 'EA Sports College Football 25.' I'm told Arch is focused on playing football on the field," Richardson wrote on his X on March 4.

Manning, the son of Cooper Manning, nephew of Eli and Peyton Manning and grandson of Archie Manning, enters his redshirt freshman season behind returning starter Quinn Ewers, who announced his decision to forego the 2024 NFL Draft in January. The former five-star prospect threw for 30 yards on 2 of 5 passing during his lone appearance in Texas' 57-7 win against Texas Tech, replacing Maalik Murphy, who started in the absence of an injured Ewers and announced his decision to transfer to Duke in December.

Manning was the consensus No. 1 player in the 2023 national recruiting cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, which averages prospect rankings from the industry's top recruiting websites.
