Yesterday, Johnny Manziel was grilled about his early departure from the Manning Passing Academy this past weekend. Johnny explained that he “overslept” the morning meetings, which stirred up quite a bit of controversy. Manziel also revealed that he was roommates with Alabama’s A.J. McCarron at the Academy, which caused many people to question why McCarron didn’t wake him up.
McCarron has refused to comment on the situation, saying that it was a question for Johnny, not him, but sources told ESPN’s Joe Schad that McCarron did try to wake up Manziel that morning, with no luck:
AJ McCarron tried – unsuccessfully – to wake up roommate Johnny Manziel at least once at the Manning Camp, a source tells @schadjoe.

Manziel insisted that his missing the meeting had nothing to do with alcohol or a hangover, but he refused to answer if he drank alcohol the night before. Speculation will now run rampant that he was indeed passed out, if McCarron couldn’t wake him, but remember that nothing is confirmed at this moment.
