Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel in tweet: ‘I can’t wait to leave College Station’
A since-deleted late-night tweet has led to speculation that Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is not happy with college and will look to make the jump to the NFL in 2014.
At 1:38 a.m. local time on Sunday, Manziel tweeted, “Bulls**t like tonight is a reason why I can’t wait to leave college station…whenever it may be” (screen grab via Deadspin).
He quickly deleted the tweet and posted a message saying he loves A&M (which is located in College Station, Texas).
Don't ever forget that I love A&M with all of my heart, but please please walk a day in my shoes—
