Always Be 'Crootin: Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin is only following 1 person on Instagram
Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin is not a stranger to unusual-but-effective recruiting methods.
Kiffin only follows one account on his Instagram account: 5-star QB prospect Arch Manning, the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning.
According to 247Sports Composite rankings, Manning is the top-ranked player in the 2023 recruiting class.

Arch’s grandfather, Archie Manning, attended Ole Miss from 1968 to 1970 as a quarterback. His father, Cooper Manning, attended Ole Miss as a wide receiver. Of course, his uncle Eli also attended Ole Miss from 2000 to 2003 and was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft.
Arch currently has 12 collegiate offers, including Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, and Ole Miss. He does not have an offer from a B1G school.
It’s early in the cycle, but Ole Miss doesn’t currently have any commitments in the class of 2023. The Rebels’ 2022 class currently ranks No. 39 nationally and No. 13 in the SEC, per 247Sports Composite rankings.
