Chris Huston of the Heisman Pundit recently released his Big 12 Heisman picks with West Virginia University appearing the sure winner.
Huston’s number one Heisman candidate was none other than WVU Quarterback, Geno Smith. Throwing for almost 4,400 yards this year, Smith lead the Mountaineers to a 70-33 win over the Clemson Tigers in the 2012 Orange bowl.
Another Mountaineer, Tavon Austin, made Huston’s list under the “Dark Horse” category. Austin is widely regarded as one of college football’s most versatile skill players hailing from Dunbar High School in Baltimore, Maryland.
Head coach Dana Holgorsen’s high-speed spread offense is sure to shake up the Big 12 this fall.
