2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: Best Value Candidate No. 10
QB Spencer Rattler, Oklahoma 12/1
Can Oklahoma really make it three Heisman winners in four years?
The crazy part about this unbelievable string of success was that Jalen Hurts might have had a better year than Kyler Murray did in 2018 and Baker Mayfield came up with in 2017, and didn’t win.
But Hurts was special. Mayfield was special. Murray was special.
We still don’t quite know yet if Rattler is special.
He’s supposed to be. Unlike the last three OU starting quarterbacks, Rattler started his career in Norman and didn’t come in as a transfer.
There aren’t any superstar transfers out there like another Hurts, but there’s one big issue at 12/1 – Tanner Mordecai might be good enough to win the job.
However, the line is 12/1 because Rattler hasn’t taken over one of the best positions in all of sports – it’l go down to 5/1 if and when he does.
