Johnny Manziel's No. 2 to be worn by top recruit Speedy Noil

Johnny Manziel's No. 2 jersey isn't likely to be retired anytime soon based on A&M's history with retiring numbers.

If Texas A&M ultimately decides to put Johnny Manziel's No. 2 jersey in a glass case and retire it, it won't be before Speedy Noil gets to try it on.

The Aggies' top wide receiver recruit tweeted a photo of his Texas A&M locker Tuesday -- Noil is among a few signees who are already enrolled for spring classes -- and sure enough, he got the deuce that Manziel made famous.

Noil might not have to worry about his jersey being seized for a while.

According to, it took 56 years for Texas A&M to take action on the only jersey it's ever retired, John David Crow's No. 44. Noil, a five-star recruit from New Orleans, is considered among the nation's top players at his position.

Something tells us, however, that the Aggies will get around to this jersey retirement a little more quickly than it took for Crow's.
