SEC media days begin on Tuesday and Texas A&M takes its turn in Hoover, Ala., on Wednesday. In addition to head coach Kevin Sumlin, the Aggies are sending quarterback Johnny Manziel, offensive tackle Jake Matthews and defensive back Toney Hurd Jr. Before it all begins, here are five storylines to keep an eye on:

Alabama coach Nick Saban normally creates the most notable buzz at media days, but that could change this year with Manziel's appearance. The reigning Heisman Trophy winner made headlines throughout the offseason, whether it was with his social media accounts, celebrities he hung out with or destinations he traveled to. Most recently, he made an early exit from the Manning Passing Academy. Expect the questions to be plentiful and wide-ranging when Manziel meets with the media.
