2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: No. 13 The 25/1 Candidate
QB Mac Jones, Alabama
This is all about your investment strategy.
The Alabama starting quarterback should be around a 7/1 prospect, but there’s so much uncertainty around Jones.
He’s good, and he’s the odds-on favorite to win the starting job, but Nick Saban hasn’t been afraid to play young quarterbacks – Jalen Hurts started as a freshman – and Taulia Tagovailoa is in place to get his shot.
The real issue for Jones will be super-recruit Bryce Young, who appears to be the next great dual-threat Bama quarterback. Young has the upside and the talent, but Jones will get the first crack.
If this is a rebound year to be back in the national title chase, with the receiving corps returning, 25/1 isn’t a bad play.
