Ohio State quarterback C.J. Stroud currently holds the best odds to win the Heisman Trophy, but he’s not the only member of the Buckeyes to watch. TreVeyon Henderson currently holds +4000 odds, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
TreVeyon Henderson Odds to Win Heisman Trophy
Perhaps lost in the shadow of his own quarterback and other Big Ten studs like Hassan Haskins and Kenneth Walker, TreVeyon Henderson quietly put together a season to remember in 2021. At 5-foot-10 and 210 pounds, Henderson has a durable frame, has big-play ability, and is a complete back.
Henderson eclipsed the 100-yard rushing mark three times last season, including a 270-yard effort in a win over Tulsa. With more touches, Henderson may have had an even bigger year in 2021, but taking the ball out of C.J. Stroud’s hands is rarely a good idea. The fact that Stroud is so good could be the biggest obstacle to Henderson winning the Heisman.
Although he received 20 carries in just three games last season, Henderson managed to average better than 6.8 yards per tote. That ranked second in the Big Ten and 13th in the country.
With names including Howard “Hopalong” Cassady, Bob Ferguson, Archie Griffin, Eddie George, Maurice Clarett, and Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State has a rich history in the running back position. Ohio State is tied for the most Heisman Trophies with seven. Six were won by running backs.
George was the last Ohio State running back to win the Heisman when he did so in 1995. Griffin, the 1974 and 1975 winner, remains the only two-time Heisman recipient.
