Reports: Manziel Investigation Concluding Soon

Ronald Martinez

It won't be long until we get some measure of resolution.

The drama surrounding Johnny Manziel's autographs and the NCAA appears headed towards an end very soon. At least, as far as the actual investigation goes.

ESPN's Travis Haney, not Joe Schad or Darren Rovell it should be noted, is reporting that the NCAA grilled Manziel for six hours on Sunday about the allegations that he took money for signing memorabilia:

The governing body's officials met Sunday with Manziel, the reigning Heisman Trophy winner, for nearly six hours on the College Station, Texas, campus, the source said. It was unclear whether the NCAA was satisfied with the initial meeting with Manziel or if it would require additional time with the redshirt sophomore.

Perhaps it's unclear to ESPN's source if that was enough, but someone at A&M leaked to a local sports radio host that the school thinks it'll get the final word tomorrow:

Suddenly, the timing of the school's gag order regarding Manziel and his status for today's coach and player press availability makes sense. The interrogation happens on Sunday, the gag order comes out Monday, details leak out on Tuesday, and a resolution comes (probably) on Wednesday. Nice and tidy.

Of course the drama surrounding this matter will never die, just as SEC fans still argue about Cam Newton and Albert Means to this day. We apparently will, however, at least get some final word on his eligibility to play this season very soon.

UPDATE: Bruce Feldman adds that Manziel denied taking money for autographs. Which: of course.
