Five-star running back Joe Mixon (Oakley, Calif.) will be playing his college ball for Oklahoma, according to Justin Hopkins of 247Sports, but one famous Texas A&M Aggies player is clearly among his influences.
After scoring a touchdown in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Mixon celebrated with the "show me the money" dance made famous by Johnny Manziel:
Manziel started doing the gesture as a redshirt freshman in 2012, celebrating scores all the way to a Heisman Trophy. But this year, after being investigated by the NCAA for allegedly selling autographs, he drew the ire of many by doing the same dance against Rice in the season opener.
Mixon is No. 10 in the all-purpose back 247Sports rankings for 2014. Earlier in the Army All-American game, he flashed another part of his skill set by taking a screen pass down the sideline for a long gain.
We'll let you know once he announces his commitment.
