Johnny Manziel, the former Cleveland quarterback whose NFL career was derailed by a series of off-field incidents that include a still-pending domestic violence charge, has re-enrolled at Texas A&M.

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

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.

In July, Manziel was suspended for four games by the NFL for violating its substance abuse policy and could face additional penalties for breaking the league's personal conduct policy.

Manziel would have to serve the penalty if he is picked up by another team.

The suspension, though, does not "roll over," meaning that if the quarterback sits out the 2016 season, he would not have to miss any games for the 2017 season because of the current penalty. The NFL stated, according to ESPN, that Manziel could participate in all preseason activities if he is picked up.

Manziel's misdemeanor charges stem from an alleged altercation with ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley in Texas.

The alleged attack on Crowley in January could lead to the NFL suspending Manziel for more games for violating his personal conduct policy.
