Texas sophomore QB gets special Twitter follow from Johnny Manziel hours after playoff win

Prep Rally

It may still be relatively early in Kyler Murray's prep football career, but when a quarterback shows exceptional talent college programs will find a way to show that they are interested in his future, even when a player is just a sophomore.

Still, the man who happened to be showing interest in Murray's progress over the weekend raised the eyebrows of just about anyone and everyone. That's because he happened to be a fellow unknown Texas quarterback a few years ago, and now finds himself holding one of the great trophies in all of competitive sports.

As reported by the Dallas Morning News, Murray received a very special Twitter follow from new Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel. The Texas A&M redshirt freshman followed Murray just hours after the Allen sophomore led the powerful Eagles past DeSoto (Texas) High, 51-36, in the UIL Class 5A Division II state semifinals.

No sooner than Manziel officially followed Murray than Murray excitedly responded to the A&M living legend, thanking him for the follow, as you can see in the Tweet below. For his part, Manziel offered up a quick response of his own, encouraging Murray to keep playing his own game in the games and years ahead.

It goes without saying that Manziel following Murray on Twitter could serve as a powerful recruiting tool for Texas A&M, thanks to the Aggies quarterback's celebrity status. Yet A&M may not have needed Manziel's help to impress Murray, whose father Kevin Murray served as the Aggies' starting quarterback for three seasons, racking up an impressive 25-6-1 record.

That is a heck of a career mark for any Aggie quarterback, though Manziel might prove to be even more effective. If the two have anything to do with it, the younger Murray might prove to make a run at his Dad's record as well, all with Manziel watching all the time.
