Johnny Manziel backup Jameill Showers to transfer from Texas A&M

Bob Levey

Showers will pursue more playing time at another school for his remaining two seasons of eligibility.

Texas A&M backup quarterback Jameill Showers is transferring from the program to explore his options elsewhere. Showers, who just completed his sophomore season, would have continued to play behind Heisman winner Johnny Manziel for the next two seasons had he stayed in College Station.

Showers called the move "bittersweet," and by all indications he was well-liked and respected by his A&M teammates. It appears that some of the early candidates for his services include Texas Tech, Baylor, Arizona State and California. He'll have two years of eligibility remaining, wherever he does end up.

Showers completed 27 of 44 passes for 319 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in 2012; he appeared in seven games for the Aggies. As a freshman in 2011, he appeared in five games but attempted only five passes.

Coming out of high school, Showers was ranked as the 27th-best quarterback in the class of 2010 by Rivals.
