2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: No. 11. The 14/1 Candidate
QB Jamie Newman, Georgia
It’s going to be interesting to see how this works.
Jake Fromm was never remotely close to being in the Heisman race, but he wasn’t 6-4 and 230 pounds like Jamie Newman.
The transfer from Wake Forest threw for almost 3,000 yards last year with 26 touchdowns, but does he have the talent to rise up at a place whose last three quarterbacks – at least as options – were Fromm, Justin Fields, and Jacob Eason?
But will it really be Newman under center? There’s a chance the main man might be D’Wan Mathis, now that he’s been cleared after suffering a brain cyst.
It’ll be a fight, and the winner this offseason is about right at 14/1.
