No one thinks Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will return to College Station for another year. But Manziel didn’t say much about his future in the immediate aftermath of a thrilling 52-48 win over Duke in the Bowl formerly known as Peach.
“I cant even think about anything other than this game right now,” Manziel told ESPN’s Samantha Ponder from the field after wiping out a 21-point halftime deficit. “I love Texas A&M. I love my teammates. Unreal.”
So what would bring him back to the Aggies for another year?
“This guy [coach Kevin Sumlin] and all this teammates I have right here,” Manziel said. “I love them more than anything on the face of this earth.”
At least one team in the NFL will love Manziel enough to make him a first-round pick, if he chooses to leave. Once the emotion of tonight’s game wears off, it’ll be a shock if he doesn’t.
