Arch Manning will not be in attendance for the start of summer workouts at Texas this week, but he has a good reason for it.
Longhorns workouts begin on Tuesday, but Manning has an excused absence. The quarterback is graduating from Isidore Newman High School on Wednesday and will be in attendance at that event instead.
This is a pretty solid reminder that Manning is a true freshman and actually enrolled early to get started at Texas as soon as possible. The move has no doubt given him a head start, but it also means there will be little interruptions like this one.
