The Heisman trophy is one of the most sought after awards in all of sports, it’s an elite fraternity made up of what is considered to be the top players in college football. So who will the Heisman Trust invite to New York in 2012?
What we know.
Collin Klein played lackluster and is no longer the Heisman front runner, but I think he still has a shot at winning.
Johnny Football Manziel seems to be the guy now to win the Heisman. He’s a freshman and no freshman has ever won, but it looks like that won’t be an issue this year.
AJ McCarron will have to have a strong Iron bowl and an even better SEC Championship performance just to get back into the race.
Manti Te’o will be in the mix as long as Notre Dame stays unbeaten, but his stats will keep him from winning the Heisman.
Marqise Lee is the best wide receiver in the county, but his team having 4 losses and he doesn’t really have a Heisman moment. He has a shot at an invite, but little shot at winning.
These projections will evolve throughout the season as they battle it out on the gridiron.
