Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel still hasn't decided on his future, even though he said this week that he feels he is ready for the NFL.

Manziel and the five other Heisman Trophy candidates met with the media on Friday, and Manziel shed some light on becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. This year's award will be handed out Saturday night in New York City.

"I wasn't prepared for it, and I don't know if you really can be," Manziel said, via CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman.

Manziel's season was relatively quiet off the field, but he did statistically have a better passing season this year than last. He threw for 3,537 yards with 32 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also ran for 654 yards and another eight scores.

 “I feel like I’ve been in college forever, and I have two years of eligibility left,” he said.
