Will Anderson Jr.’s campaign for The Heisman Trophy continues to grow.

Former Alabama defensive back Roman Harper is the latest person to publicly advocate Anderson Jr. to win college football’s ultimate award. Harper certainly knows something about football after a long career in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers. Harper is all on board with the Alabama defensive end/linebacker getting more consideration for the Heisman.

“Everybody continues to talk about how great Bryce Young has played. I get all of that,” Harper said on the SEC’s Marty and McGee. “The best player in college football is Will Anderson, defensive end from Alabama.

“He is the guy who really deserves the Heisman.”

There are plenty of reasons to consider Anderson Jr. as chronicled here in an article published on Saturday Down South. Alabama hosts Arkansas today at 3:30
