Johnny Manziel will make his decision about whether or not to forego his collegiate eligibility for the NFL Draft before this year's Aggies' bowl game, Kevin Sumlin said on Friday.

Sumlin was on ESPN Radio's "SVP and Russillo."

"We haven't had that conversation yet," Sumlin said. "My job is to get him all the facts that we can get him. We'll have that discussion after the Missouri game, certainly during the bowl preparation. I'm sure the announcement will be made at that time."

Texas A&M finishes its season Nov. 30 against Missouri. Bowl games involving the SEC start in late December.

Coming off his Heisman win last year as a redshirt freshman, Manziel is again a top candidate this season, throwing for over 3,000 yards with 31 touchdown passes (intercepted 11 times) and eight more touchdowns on the ground.
