Johnny Manziel receives props from Drake for media day

Johnny Manziel OVO DrakeJohnny Manziel has friends in high places, but you already knew that.

Johnny Football has been repping Drake’s gear and shouting out the rapper’s OVO crew for months ever since meeting the Canadian artist over the offseason. In fact, Manziel even said meeting Drake was the highlight of his offseason.

Apparently that relationship goes two ways.

Drake tweets infrequently — he’s sent less than 1,500 — but he did make sure to shout out the Texas A&M QB on Wednesday:

Drake was referencing the way the Heisman Trophy winner addressed questions at SEC media day Wednesday about his early departure from the Manning Passing Academy. Manziel admitted he missed a meeting after oversleeping, but he denies drinking alcohol or being hungover, contrary to a report.

Whether you believe Manziel or not is up to you, but we can all probably agree with Drake that the A&M QB handled himself well. What’s strange is that Manziel keeps talking about maturing, but his behavior still indicates he has a ways to go.
