Is Texas back? If you ask Matthew McConaughey, he'll say it never left!
In a tweet, the UT alumnus and superfan said, "Manning up #hookem," and tagged Texas' athletic departments.
Manning, the son of Cooper Manning, nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning and grandson of Archie Manning, announced his commitment to Texas on Thursday (June 23). "Committed to the University of Texas. #HookEm," he said in a tweet. He chose the Longhorns over Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma and Ole Miss.
The star quarterback is entering his senior season at Isidore Newman in New Orleans, where his dad and uncles played football and attended high school.
Texas football head coach Steve Sarkisian welcomed the news (obviously), with a tweet that said, "All Gas, No Brakes!!! 🤘🏼"
