HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel says he missed activities at the Manning Passing Academy because he ``overslept,'' and his absence had nothing to do with being out the night before.
Manziel left the camp for high school prospects run by the Manning family in Louisiana before it ended last weekend.
He says his eventful offseason has been at times ``blown out of proportion,'' though he did acknowledge that he needs to make better decisions because he's such a public figure.
The 20-year-old Heisman Trophy winner faced hundreds or reporters at Southeastern Conference Media Days on Wednesday. Wearing a dark blue suit, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound sophomore discussed his fame, decision-making and even answered a few questions about football.
Manziel is the first freshman to win the Heisman.
