Texas A&M quarterback and future NFL prospect Johnny Manziel appears to be dating model Lauren Hanley, according to a report.
Just days after Manziel was spotted leaving a trendy Hollywood nightclub with Hanley, the former Heisman Trophy winner reportedly took the 20-year-old blonde bombshell on a second date, TMZ reports. One of the website’s cameramen caught up with the couple as they left a “romantic sushi dinner” at Katsuya, a Hollywood restaurant.
TMZ’s reporter didn’t get a chance to talk to Hanley; he asked Manziel about his brief struggle with the teleprompter while appearing on ESPN’s coverage of Monday’s BCS National Championship game, as well as his thoughts on victorious Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. However, Hanley could be spotted sitting next to Manziel in the chauffeured SUV. Footage of TMZ’s encounter with the pair can be viewed here.
Manziel and Hanley were first linked on Sunday, when they were seen leaving a Florida State alumni party at the Emerson Theatre in Hollywood, TMZ reported. In a subsequent interview with Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard, Hanley revealed she met Manziel for the first time that night.
“Yeah, Johnny is a really sweet guy,” Hanley said. “I had never met him before, but we had a great time at the club that night! My friend Courtney and I ended up hanging out with him and his friends later on after the club closed.”
A native of Fort Lauderdale, Hanley attended Florida State University but recently moved to California. She currently works at a marijuana dispensary in Sherman Oaks, and models in her spare time.
Hanley’s social media following seems to grow by the minute. Coed.com’s “Miss Coed August 2013” has more than 12,000 followers on Twitter and over 28,000 followers on Instagram. Originally featured on Barstool Sports, she has since appeared on Sports Illustrated’s Hot Clicks, Guyism, and countless other websites.
