Five Future Heisman Contenders

Today is National Signing Day for college football and, though I continue my work to refurbish this site, I thought I’d take a look at five of the names you can expect to see contending for Heismans in the coming years.

First and foremost on the list is Terrell Pryor, who really is the next Vince Young from what I can see. In fact, he may be even faster. He is down to Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State. Where ever he goes, expect him to be a top Heisman candidate by year three.

The best running back in this class looks to be Jermie Calhoun, who is heading to Oklahoma. This guy has power and speed and should be an instant star for the Sooners.

Colorado isn’t a traditional Heisman power, but it has had a running back win the trophy in the last 15 years. Darrell Scott signed with the Buffaloes and should be very productive right away.

Whenever you play quarterback for Notre Dame, you have a chance to win the Heisman. Dayne Crist signed with the Irish and could be ready to step in if Jimmy Clausen doesn’t live up to his billing.

If Florida State can stop its slide, then E.J. Manuel has the skill set to be one of the top quarterbacks in the country.

I’m sure there are others out there I have missed. Anyone have any Heisman sleepers signing today?
