Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel made history by becoming the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy. Having a Heisman Trophy winner at quarterback for the next three years could tip the recruiting scales in the Aggies' favor for years to come.

The Aggies are already recruiting at a level that has not been seen in Aggieland since Jacke Sherrill was the head coach in the 1980s. Adding a Heisman Trophy to the trophy case should help even more.

In 2007, Tim Tebow won the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore at Florida. In 2008, the Gators brought in a top-five recruiting class. Sam Bradford and Mark Ingram followed Tebow as Heisman winners who won the award during their sophomore season.

Both Oklahoma and Alabama were able to parlay the Heisman success of their athletes into top-10 recruiting classes. The same should be expected for Texas A&M.

This is a look at why Johnny Manziel winning the Heisman Trophy will improve the Aggies' recruiting going forward.
