If the NCAA’s investigation proves that Johnny Manziel did in fact take money in exchange for promoting the sale of a product, he could immediately be ruled ineligible.

According to a report from ESPN’s “Outside the Lines”, the NCAA is investigating whether Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel accepted money in exchange for photos and signing sports memorabilia in January. Sources for “Outside the Lines” allege that Manziel agreed to sign memorabilia in exchange for a five-figure flat fee during his trip to Miami for the Discover BCS National Championship.

Although neither source claims to have seen an official exchange of money, both sources said that they did witness the signing of the agreement to pay Manziel for his services.

Texas A&M has been questioned about Manziel and sports memorabilia in the past, and the school has denied that any wrongdoing has taken place.
