Johnny Manziel is not coming back to Texas A&M.
Even though the redshirt sophomore has not officially announced his intentions to declare for the NFL draft, Darren Rovell of ESPN.com is reporting that Manziel has chosen Select Sports Group in Houston to be his representation and LRMR, the firm run by LeBron James' business partner Maverick Carter, to do his marketing.
Rovell said he didn’t know whether Manziel had signed any documents.
During the BCS National Championship, Manziel told ESPN’s Brett McMurphy that he was still undecided about his future plans and did not give a timeline as to when he would make a decision.
Manziel concluded his season by leading A&M to a come-from-behind win against Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year’s Eve. Since then, he’s been partying with rapper Drake, making appearances on TMZ and helping out ESPN with its Megacast during the BCS National Championship.
Manziel started his marketing endeavors last year. He and his family created JMAN2 Enterprises to trademark the term “Johnny Football.” The U.S. Trademark and Patent Office has suspended the patent as it reviews another application by a Texas A&M fan.
