Johnny Manziel has reportedly decided to turn pro.

The Texas A&M quarterback has officially submitted declaration papers for inclusion in the 2014 draft, according to senior analyst Gil Brandt.

It was widely speculated the 21-year-old redshirt sophomore would leave school, especially with reports that he had signed with an agent.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner threw for 63 touchdowns and ran for 30 more, with 22 interceptions and a 68.9 completion percentage, in two seasons as a starter for the Aggies. He had a 20-6 record, including a 10-6 mark in SEC play, with wins in the Cotton and Chick-fil-A bowls.
