Caleb Williams, QB, USC (+800)

As you can see from the list, the top three players with the highest odds are unquestionably quarterbacks. CJ Stroud was the most popular player of the year, followed by defending Heisman champion Bryce Young. Third on the list is Oklahoma transfer Caleb Williams, who is full of intrigue and edge.

Last year was supposed to be Spencer Rattler’s coronation in Oklahoma. That didn’t happen. Caleb Williams took over halfway through the season and you can see his growth every week. Halfway through Oklahoma’s game against Texas, Williams finished with a 65 percent completion rate for 1,810 yards, 21 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also added 381 rushing yards and five touchdowns.

Williams followed his former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley’s transfer to USC. The two share a built-in familiarity and also landed a move for wide receiver Jordan Addison, one of the top receivers in the 2023 NFL draft class. Considering a full season, Williams’ value at +800 is a tempting bet.

Quinn Ewers, Texas QB (+2000)

This is an interesting one. Quinn Ewers started his college career at Ohio State last year but was buried on the depth chart by Stroud.Texas Products Ranked No. 1 for All Positions in College Hiring Class of 2021 It’s safe to say that Ohio State was pleased with Stroud’s performance last year. But Ules has the talent and potential to break into the national stage in his first year as a starting quarterback after moving to the University of Texas.

The upside for Ewers is arguably the best running back in the country, behind Bijan Robinson and dynamic second-year receiver Xavier Worthy running the line for him. That offense has the potential to explode this season, and if any of the names at the top of the roster falter, Ules could find himself in the Heisman conversation.

TreVeyon Henderson, RB, Ohio State University (+2000)

A bona fide freshman, Trevyan Henderson has proven to be one of the best running backs in the country. He rushed for 183 catches for 1,248 yards and 15 touchdowns, while adding 27 catches for 312 yards and four extra points. He did all of that and didn’t get the ball until his third game.

This year, Henderson will lead the way. With Garrett Wilson and Chris Olaf leaving the NFL, Henderson will join wide receiver Jaxson Smith-Njiba as the two best offensive players on Ohio State’s roster.

A running back hasn’t won the Heisman since Derrick Henry in 2015, but with the talent Henderson possesses, he’s worth a shot.
