5 Players Who Deserve Also Receiving Votes Love …
In alphabetical order …
QB Eric Dungey, Syracuse
QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas
QB Jake Fromm, Georgia
QB McKenzie Milton, UCF
RB Dexter Williams, Notre Dame
5. QB Dwayne Haskins, Ohio State
He’s suffering from the team being so underwhelming.
The Buckeyes might not be doing anything amazing – other than getting to 9-1 and being deep in the hunt for the Big Ten Championship and the College Football Playoff – but Haskins continues to be amazing.
Ho-hum. He just dealt with one of the nation’s top defenses and threw for 227 yards and a score in the win over Michigan State. The key was not screwing up. The Spartans needed Buckeye mistakes to pull off the win, and they didn’t come.
Even after failing to hit 300 yards in either of the last two games, Haskins is still third in the nation in total passing yards, throwing for 3,280 with 33 touchdowns and six touchdowns.
If he’s able to blow through Maryland, Michigan, and Northwestern for a Big Ten title, he’s going to New York.
