2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: No. 14. The 30/1 Candidates
QB Myles Brennan, LSU
Too many of the pieces are gone – and the schedule is too nasty – to ask for lightning to strike twice. Freshmen Max Johnson and TJ Finley will get a look, but no matter who’s under center, the receiving corps to work with will be extraordinary.
QB Sam Howell, North Carolina
He’s a big-time talent who might not have the size, but he’s a player. Winning the Heisman as the North Carolina starting quarterback is too big a hill to climb, but expect a massive season.
QB Bo Nix, Auburn
This might seem preposterous considering Nix didn’t set the world on fire statistically, but he was a true freshman. Auburn will be terrific, Nix was a top recruit last year for a reason, and … nah. Not yet, but if he turns it loose, he could rise up fast.
