So will he go or will he come back for one more shot at a national championship?
"We haven't had that conversation," Sumlin said. "My job is to get him all the facts that we can get him. We'll have that discussion after the Missouri game, certainly during the bowl preparation. I'm sure the announcement will be made at that time."That makes sense. If he is going to enter the draft than the game can be used as his final send-off; his Senior Day moment. It also gives the fans a chance to come out and support their favorite quarterback one more time before he puts on a different uniform.
There has been rumors that Manziel has met with agents (totally legal) already making it appear as if he is leaning towards declaring for the draft. His talent is obvious and he is definitely a game-changing talent. There are likely a few teams that will be glad to use a first round pick on him.
Most players make the decision because of money though, and that is something that Manziel does not have to worry about since his family is already wealthy. That puts him in a spot where he could stay in college and try to lead Texas A&M to the national championship in the first year of the new system.
If he does, his legend will grow--a player that stays in college to do something for his team and school; giving up millions in salary and endorsements. All for the love of the game!
But if he gets hurt there goes his draft position and millions of dollars over the course of his rookie contract. Should it be serious he might even need to play another year in college to prove that he is still the beast that fans know and love.
