Back in 2013, Drake spent the entire college football season repping Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. The two became friends during Johnny Football's 2012 freshman season at A&M when Manziel won the Heisman Trophy. So during his sophomore campaign, Drizzy showed his fair share of support for him. But now that Manziel has moved on to the NFL and joined the Cleveland Browns, it appears as though Drake is ready to throw his support behind a new college football quarterback.
That quarterback isn't Manziel's A&M replacement Kenny Hill—a.k.a. "Kenny Trill"—though. It's also not Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who won the Heisman last year. And it's not Notre Dame shotcaller Everett Golson, either, who has surprised some people by leading the Fighting Irish to three easy wins so far this season. Instead, it's…
That's right. During a stop on the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne Tour over the weekend, Drizzy pulled out not one, but two different Marcus Mariota jerseys. It's worth noting that Drake was in Washington this weekend, so it made sense for him to wear the Oregon QB's jersey. But it's also worth noting that, at the moment, Mariota is a Heisman Trophy hopeful and a guy who could potentially lead his team to the first-ever College Football Playoff. So given Drake's history of supporting proven winners—ahem—we wouldn't be surprised if he stayed on the Marcus Mariota bandwagon long after the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne Tour left the Northwest.
