Texas A&M's redshirt freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel put himself on the national map with an eye-opening performance against SMU on Saturday afternoon. His performance in the second game of his college career indicates that he should be a headache for Southeastern Conference defenses for years to come.
Manziel passed for a freshman school record of 294 yards to go along with 124 yards rushing. His 418 total yards also set a Texas A&M record for freshmen. His four touchdown passes tied an Aggie record for freshman quarterbacks.
It is safe to say that if he stays healthy for the next four years, he will likely rewrite some of the record books. The scary thing for SEC defensive coordinators is that Manziel is only scratching the surface of what he should be.
Manziel and his teammates are playing in a brand new scheme. Once they all jell on the field, the offense should really be a sight to behold.
This is a look at why Manziel should wreak havoc on SEC defenses for years to come.
