    Former Cleveland quarterback Johnny Manziel has re-enrolled at Texas A&M after his NFL career was derailed by a series of off-field incidents that included a domestic violence charge still pending in court.

    A school spokesman confirmed Manziel's enrollment Monday, saying he couldn't provide other details because of student privacy laws.

    Manziel played two seasons for the Aggies and was the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy in 2012. He turned pro after his redshirt sophomore season but had two disappointing seasons after the Browns drafted him in the first round in 2014. Cleveland released him in March.

    A hearing in the 23-year-old Manziel's domestic violence case in Dallas is set for Sept. 15.
