After months of speculation, Johnny Manziel made it official Wednesday that he is leaving Texas A&M for the NFL. Since the announcement came out, the Texas A&M football program has expressed nothing but gratitude for Manziel's awesome two-year stint as the Aggies' starting quarterback.
In a statement, A&M coach Kevin Sumlin called Manziel "the most exciting football player" he has ever seen.
“We appreciate everything he has done for Texas A&M and Aggie football and wish him nothing but the best,” Sumlin said.
Also, the Texas A&M official Twitter account tweeted a cool Manziel infographic with all of Johnny Football's statistics and achievements.

And they also released a great highlight reel of Manziel's awesome plays from the past two years. Set to "Trophies" by Drake (of course), fans can re-live some of Manziel's fantastic throws and runs before showing him hoisting the illustrious Heisman Trophy.
With 9,989 total yards and 93 total touchdowns, Manziel ranks first in Aggies history. He is widely expected to be a first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
