Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel told reporters prior to receiving the Davey O'Brien Quarterback Award Monday that he's taking all classes online this semester and only comes to campus about once a week.

Manziel said the commotion that followed his breakthrough season as Heisman Trophy winner during Texas A&M's inaugural SEC season was unexpected. Too many students asking for photo opps and autographs made class environments nearly impossible for other students and professors.

"I didn't think anything of it, and it kind of turned into a little more of a big deal than I thought," Manziel said, according to the Associated Press.

His online course load meets NCAA and university regulations. Manziel and his parents met with athletic director Eric Hyman and Texas A&M compliance officials regarding his on-campus challenges and his off-season life that included trips to the Super Bowl and the NBA All-Star Game.

“I feel like by now if I was doing something wrong, compliance would have definitely figured something out,” Manziel said
