You don’t have to wait too long to get into college football. Take a look at the Heisman Trophy, early favorites for 2022. It’s not surprising that signal-callers are the early favorites, with 17 of the previous 20 Heisman Trophy winners coming from the quarterback position. Check out the best bookmakers for betting on the Heisman Trophy.
Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback C.J. Stroud is the early favorite with +250. He was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. As a redshirt freshman, Stroud threw 4,435 yards and 44 touchdowns. He is also a favorite for the No.
Bryce Young, Alabama Crimson Tide football quarterback, was the 2021 Heisman winner. He will be looking to become the first player to win consecutive years of the trophy since Archie Griffin, Ohio State’s running back, did it in 1974/75.
USC Trojans QB Caleb Williams has a +900 and is expected to put up huge numbers under new head coach Lincoln Riley. Williams was a part-time starter in Oklahoma’s 2021 football team and accumulated over 2,300 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Texas Longhorns running back Bijan Robinson (+2000) and Clemson Tigres quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei (+2800) round out the top five.
You can also watch these names:
The USC transfer should flourish in Lane Kiffin’s offense. Jaxson Dart (+3500) will be the starting Quarterback for the Ole Miss Rebels, which was expected. Although Dart was forced to start for the Trojans after Kedon Slovis was hurt, he displayed much more poise and arm talent as a true freshman. Some believe he will be better than Williams in the 2024 QB Draft class.
Jahmyr Gibbs, the new Alabama running back (+6000), is worth your attention. Gibbs is a transfer from Georgia Tech. He had 746 yards running and 465 receiving last season for Alabama. These numbers should increase in Alabama’s offense.
