Vince Young 'Hearing' Arch Manning Will Redshirt When He Arrives at Texas

Texas Longhorns fans might be waiting a while to see quarterback Arch Manning take the field. Vince Young said Thursday on ESPN's First Take (h/t Stephen Samra of On3) that he's heard Manning will redshirt his freshman season:

"I really feel like Arch has a great opportunity. One of the things that I am hearing is that he is going to redshirt. That's going to help out a lot so you can understand how to travel with the team, get the feel of the fans, the university. So, when you have those types of things and you take a year off like when I played with Coach [Mack] Brown, I redshirted.
