The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / 8 Preseason Heisman Trophy Candidates for 2018

8 Preseason Heisman Trophy Candidates for 2018

Top Heisman Candidates for 2018!
Publish Date: 06/09/2018
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

8) Will Grier, QB, West Virginia

In 2017, Grier threw for 3,490 yards and 34 touchdowns, the latter tally good for eighth in the nation until his season ended due to a gruesome injury. West Virginia’s pass-happy offense and a plethora of offensive weapons make it very likely that Grier can put up Heisman winning numbers. The biggest question will be can the Mountaineers win enough games to make Grier relevant in the race?

7) Tua Tagovailoa, QB, Alabama

I know we don’t have a lot to go on here, but it’s hard to ignore a Freshman Quarterback who steps in at halftime and can lead a team to a National Championship. Tua still has to win the starting job from a very good quarterback in Jalen Hurts and then take into account the possibility of Tua splitting time with Hurts. It is impossible to discount Tua at this point.

 

6) Jarrett Stidham, QB, Auburn

Stidham, a transfer from Baylor, made a great first impression last year by beating Alabama and taking Auburn to the SEC Championship game. He will only improve off last year’s season.

5) Jake Fromm, QB, Georgia

Fromm on ability alone should be higher than this,  but I worry that the Georgia run game will be just good enough to keep him out of the top 3 by season’s end. Fromm will have an even better season than last year so don’t count him out. He will be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft sometime in the next two years.

4) J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State

Dobbins was another freshman who greatly impressed in 2017, rushing for 1,403 yards and seven touchdowns. Ohio State returns most of their offense from last year and I expect Dobbins to have a monster season.

3) Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State

Losing Saquon Barkley is a huge blow to the Nittany Lions offense, but McSorley is a veteran that has proven in big games he can shoulder the load. If Penn State contends in the Big Ten, he very well could have a Heisman winning season.

2) Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin

Taylor as a Freshman came up just short of 2,000 yards rushing and with the Badgers run-heavy offense, Taylor should be able to surpass 2,000 yards this season.

1) Bryce Love, RB, Stanford 

Love has to be the unquestioned favorite to win the Heisman this season. He was a runner-up last year and rushed for over 2,000 yards. He was hampered for much of the season by an ankle injury, but if he stays healthy, he should win the Heisman trophy.
