Leaving Texas A&M after just two years of being the starting quarterback for the Aggies was a massive mistake, Johnny Manziel has revealed.

The Heisman-winning quarterback of 2012 said in an interview: “After the Pro Day at College Station, and I realized: I made a horrible mistake leaving College Station a year early. I could have stayed another year, got through some of my errors – I still regret some of those turnovers- and won the Heisman again.”

And let’s face it: Manziel is from a family who doesn’t exactly need the money, either.

Manziel’s career with Texas A&M was sparkling: He threw for 7,820 yards and 63 TDs. And ran for 2,169 and 30 TDs. And missed an extra point. He won the Heisman in 2012 and led Texas A&M to two straight bowl games, including a virtuoso performance against Duke.

BOTTOM LINE: Not only that, Johnny, but you would have played your first game of the season against a Jadeveon Clowney-less South Carolina, and 50% of SEC teams you’re facing are low on quarterbacks. Plus, bearing in mind 2014 is such a strong draft for quarterbacks, you could have waltzed into 2015 as the top QB pick in the land. And maybe the No.1 Draft Pick.
