Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel will be taking all online classes next fall at the school because his newfound celebrity makes it more difficult for him to physically show up to class.
“It just happened to work out where it was good after the football season with all of the stuff going on,” Manziel told the San Antonio Express-News last week.
Manziel said he went to class after winning the Heisman and was swarmed at the football-crazed school.
“I went one day — it was a small class of 20 or 25 — and it kind of turned into more of a big deal than I thought,” Manziel said. “The (athletic department) did a good job of saying, 'Let us know if you need anything and we'll figure it all out,' but (by then) I had all online classes, so we didn't need that.”
