The past week has seen a flurry of football commitments coming in at an historic pace.

The Texas Longhorns and Washington Huskies have each had multi-commitment days, while Arch Manning, the nation's top overall prospect, and Rueben Owens, the nation's No. 1 running back, have come off the board.

Here's a look at the top recruiting news of the past few days:

- Arch Manning, nation's No. 1 overall prospect, commits to Texas Longhorns

The "Manning sweepstakes" has come to an end - with the Texas Longhorns on top.

If Texas isn't back yet, it seems highly likely they will be during the Manning era. 

- Rueben Owens, nation's No. 1 running back, commits to Louisville Cardinals

Louisville has become a major national recruiting power seemingly overnight.

But much of that effort has come in the state of California.

With the addition of Owens, the Cardinals are flexing their recruiting muscles in the state of Texas as well. 

- Cedric Baxter Jr., nation's No. 2 running back, down to 4, sets commitment date

Ready for a summer commitment, Cedric Baxter Jr. is down to Florida, Miami, Texas and Texas A&M - with the Longhorns believed to be the favorites. 

- Versatile defensive lineman Braylon Rigsby commits to Texas Tech

Rigsby is considered a three-star D-line recruit. He’s tabbed by 247 Sports as the 101st-ranked Texas high school football prospect in the class of 2023 and one of the country’s top 70 senior defensive line recruits.

- Fast-rising prospect Jacob Lane commits to Washington Huskies

After seeing his stock rise all spring, Jacob Lane locked in his commitment to the Huskies, part of a red-hot week for the Pac-12 program.

- Leroy Bryant, California three-star cornerback, has high praise for Washington Huskies following visit

From a sunny Saturday yacht ride to crab and lobster meals to hard-hitting football conversations, Leroy Bryant's visit to Seattle checked a lot of boxes.

He's getting ready to make a summer decision. 

- Prediction: Former Central Catholic star Riley Williams, the nation's No. 2 tight end, to choose Miami, Mario Cristobal

Riley Williams recently eliminated Oregon and announced his intentions to transfer to IMG Academy in Florida.

Now, it appears he'll stay in-state for college after all, as Miami has emerged as his likely favorite as his Friday decision nears 

- Five-star quarterback Jaden Rashada chooses Miami Hurricanes

Despite significant buzz in Florida's favor in the week leading up to Rashada's decision, it was Mario Cristobal and the Miami Hurricanes who finished on top.

Rashada was the second-to-last five-star quarterback left on the market, leaving Michigan's Dante Moore as the last remaining superstar quarterback uncommitted in the 2023 recruiting cycle. 

- Prediction: Oregon Ducks to land 5-star quarterback Dante Moore

Michigan and Texas A&M continue to push, but following five-star quarterback Dante Moore's return trip to Eugene, the Ducks appear to be in the driver's seat to land the coveted signal-caller.

Moore is the last remaining uncommitted five-star quarterback nationally.

- Prediction: Oregon Ducks to land all-American Bowl defensive back Caleb Presley

Down to a final six of Alabama, Michigan State, Oregon, Texas A&M, UCLA and Washington, the Ducks have long been rumored to be the favorites.

With a commitment date set for next week, Dan Lanning's crew appears poised to land one of the nation's top defensive backs.

- Prediction: Oregon State Beavers poised to land highest-rated HS defensive prospect in program history

Nevada four-star defensive lineman Kelze Howard had a frantic month of June, taking visits and also re-scheduling and canceling several trips.

In the end, he took official visits to Arizona and Oregon State, and he's ready to make his decision.

If Howard chooses Oregon State, he'll be the first composite four-star pledge for the Beavers since November 2016 (Isaiah Hodgins).

Cal, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas make the final four for Washington product Jasiah Wagoner.

He joined SBLive Sports to break down his finalists.

- Montana three-star offensive lineman Jacob Anderson commits to Oregon State

With offers from Baylor, Utah and others, Jacob Anderson committed to the Beavers.

He marked the first offensive line pledge in the program's 2023 recruiting class, joining five offensive skill position players and one defensive commit.

- Johnny Bowens, four-star defensive lineman, decommits from Texas A&M following Oregon Ducks visit

Four-star defensive lineman Johnny Bowens has been committed to Texas A&M for months, but the writing has been on the wall for some time.

He's looking around.

And Oregon is trying to make a major push.
