(NEW YORK) — NFL scouts will be all over Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel this fall as he prepares to follow up his Heisman Trophy-winning season. As it turns out, Manziel could already have the NFL on his mind.
According to a Dallas Morning News report, Manziel tweeted, “Bulls— like tonight is a reason I can’t wait to leave college station…whenever it may be.”
Manziel quickly deleted the tweet, but did post a follow-up, “Don’t ever forget that I love A&M with all my heart, but please walk a day in my shoes.”
In 2012, Manziel became the first Freshman to win the Heisman Trophy after setting SEC single-season records in total offensive yards (3,706 passing, 1,410 rushing) as touchdowns (47), and led the team to a 11-2 record.
This is not the first time Manziel has gotten attention from his Twitter activities. Back in March, he stopped tweeting after telling ESPN.com that social media “can get to be distracting at points.” He resumed tweeting in April.
Manziel’s future has been a hot topic ever since he took home the Heisman. After the 2013 season, Manziel would be eligible to declare for the NFL Draft.
