Texas A&M Aggies star quarterback and media lightning rod Johnny Manziel has been in the headlines for anything from photos of him reaching for a bong to being kicked out of frat parties. While those are minor issues for a college kid, Manziel is now in the thick of a serious investigation from the NCAA for allegedly signing autographs in exchange for cash.
Jeff Schultz of the Atlanta Journal Constitution gave his advice to Johnny Manziel during an interview with CineSport’s Noah Coslov in the video above.
Schultz urges Manziel to tell the truth about exactly what went on during the autograph signings, which is exactly what Johnny Football needs to do. Everyone will eventually find out what exactly went down, so Manziel should step up and give the NCAA an accurate story so that the investigation can move forward and be put behind him.
If the investigation speeds up, punishment could be handed down sooner rather than later, which is great for Texas A&M because it will not affect them in the long run.
For Manziel, coming clean will help him in the eyes of NFL scouts that already have concerns about his immaturity and decision making off the field. When you are preparing to bolt for the NFL, these are exactly the questions that you want to have answered before you enter the league and have NFL personnel and general managers hitting you hard with the tough questions.
Manziel needs to learn accountability and it can all begin now.
