Very few probably thought Johnny Manziel would win the Texas A&M quarterback job last year, let alone the Heisman Trophy and all the accolades he’s received following the 2012 season. Rather, Manziel was in an open competition last spring with, among others, Jameill Showers.
But Manziel was named the starting QB for the Aggies just before the season, and now Showers has decided to seek playing time somewhere else.
Speaking to Billy Liucci of TexAgs.com, Showers confirmed that he will indeed transfer from the program, although exactly where Showers plans on going is unclear. He should be on track to graduate this summer, so the good news for Showers is that he would have two years of eligibility remaining wherever he went.
Showers saw mop-up duty this past year, throwing for 319 yards and tow touchdowns to just one pick.
