NCAAF: Arch Manning to appear in ‘College Football 25’ after initial opt-out

Arch Manning changed his mind on whether his likeness would appear in “EA Sports College Football 25.”

The Texas quarterback and nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning was originally the highest-profile college football player who did not agree to let his likeness be used in the hotly anticipated revival of the video game series, due out later this month.

Reports in March said Arch Manning opted out of the potential NIL deal because he wanted to focus on football.

All of that was rendered moot Tuesday, when he posted a video with Uncle Eli to social media. The elder Manning pretends to call plays to Arch, who is wearing practice pads but playing the video game.

On3 reported that EA Sports paid Arch Manning between $50,000 and $60,000 to promote the game.

All players featured in “College Football 25” will receive $600 and a free copy of the game.

Manning enters the 2024 season as Texas’ backup quarterback behind incumbent Quinn Ewers.
