Johnny Manziel has taken the road less traveled through the NFL and back, but the Aggie legend is headed home.
The former Heisman Trophy winner has re-enrolled at Texas A&M for the Fall 2016 term, according to a report from the Dallas Morning News. Manziel is listed as an academic senior and recreation, parks and tourism science major in the Texas A&M student directory.
Rumors started swirling after a current Texas A&M student posted a screenshot of Manziel’s reply to a class discussion board post on Twitter.

“My name is Johnny. I am originally from Tyler, Texas but I also call Kerrville, TX home. I enjoy most sports but my favorites are football and golf. I am an RPTS major and have been out of school a couple of years but I’m trying to get back on track so I can graduate,” Manziel wrote in a post for his Foundations of Recreation, Park and Tourism class.
Manziel, however, will not be taking in-person classes at Texas A&M, or even live in the state of Texas while finishing his degree, per TexAgs.com’s Billy Liucci.

Manziel dropped out of the university after Fall 2013 to train for the 2014 NFL Draft. He was drafted No. 22 by the Cleveland Browns, but was cut in March 2016 after numerous legal issues and inconsistent play. Manziel appeared in 14 games for the Browns with eight starts.
Before the NFL, Manziel was a superstar at Texas A&M, throwing for 7,820 yards and accumulating 93 touchdowns in two years as a starter. He won the 2012 Heisman Trophy after leading the Aggies to a program-changing win over the Alabama Crimson Tide.
