Robert Griffin III has 3 SEC players in his top 8 Heisman rankings
Throughout the college football season, Robert Griffin III has been releasing his Heisman Trophy watch list.
Griffin, of course, won the Heisman in 2011 as a standout quarterback at Baylor, and after an NFL career that was derailed by injury, he is now a college football analyst and commentator with ESPN.
On Saturday night, Griffin released his new Heisman rankings, expanding the list from 5 players to 8.
Leading the way after Week 11 is Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, who completed 21-of-23 passes for 270 yards and 5 touchdowns in a 59-3 win over New Mexico State on Saturday.
Young is one of 3 SEC players among Griffin’s top 8. Also included from the conference are Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral at No. 6 and Georgia defensive lineman Jordan Davis at No. 8.
The other contenders on Griffin’s list are Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III at No. 2, Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud at No. 3, Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett at No. 4, Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartmann at No. 5, and Baylor running back Abram Smith at No. 7.
