Bruce Feldman Heisman ranking - Ward #6

Bruce Feldman’s preseason Top 10 Heisman Trophy candidates

6 Greg Ward, Houston, QB
He’s in a great system, and Texas RB transfer Duke Catalon will give this UH attack a new dimension. Ward can give his Heisman hopes a huge jolt if the Cougars knock off OU in Week 1. The one concern I have is aside from Chance Allen, will the Cougars young receivers step up?

Watson, Fournette, McCaffrey, Cook, and Mayfield are the top 5.

9 Greg Ward Jr., QB, Houston
A playmaking dual-threat quarterback like Ward is exactly the type of Group of 5 player that excites Heisman voters, especially if he starts off with a huge game against Oklahoma on Saturday. Ward threw for 2,828 yards and ran for 1,108 for last season’s 13-1 team. Photo: Bob Levey/Getty Images/Bob Levey
