Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel questioned by the NCAA

By Eye on College Football staff

Investigators from the NCAA met with Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel on Sunday, Bruce Feldman has confirmed. A source told Feldman the NCAA met with Manziel "for a long time." The NCAA is looking into whether Manziel received money from memorabilia dealers in exchange for his autograph.

According to an ESPN report, officials met with Manziel for approximately six hours on Texas A&M's campus and it's unclear whether the NCAA was content with the initial meeting with the reigning Heisman Trophy winner or if it would require additional time.

Up until now there has been little to suggest Manziel will be out of the lineup Saturday against Rice.

According to CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler, A&M hasn't reduced Manziel's practice reps, hasn't readied another quarterback as if it were preparing to lose Manziel and the coaching staff hadn't been notified on Manziel's status as of Friday, though the latter is not uncommon in an NCAA investigation.

As Fowler notes, Manziel must comply if the NCAA requests an interview and bylaw 10.1 specifies he must tell the truth. If Texas A&M doesn't take the proper steps with Manziel and the NCAA later proves the quarterback took money, A&M could face potential sanctions such as probation or vacated victories in which Manziel participated.
