Clemson rising sophomore quarterback boasts strong odds to take home Clemson’s first-ever Heisman.
The Clemson Tiger fanbase has been snubbed twice, if not three times, by the Heisman voters. First, it was Deshaun Watson in 2015 and 2016, then it was Trevor Lawrence, who along with teammates single-handedly saved the 2020 season.
The 2021 season started with former starting quarterback DJ Uigaleleli high on the odds makers list, however, he fell off almost before the season began.
Now, the hopes of a Heisman Trophy lie with starting quarterback Cade Klubnik.
2023 Heisman Trophy Winner
Caleb Williams +400
Drake Maye +1000
Michael Penix Jr +1200
Bo Nix +1200
Jordan Travis +1200
Brock Vandagriff +1600
Quinn Ewers +1600
Cade Klubnik +1800
What others are saying about Klubnik’s odds:
No. 3 for USA TODAY behind 2022 winner Caleb Williams and ACC player of the year Drake Maye.
“The hype machine has already kicked into gear after Klubnik replaced an ineffective DJ Uiagalelei in the ACC championship game against North Carolina and threw for 279 yards as the Tigers won easily,” said USAT’s Paul Myerberg. “With Uiagalelei already in the portal, Klubnik will take over as the obvious starter and team up with star running back Will Shipley in what may be the best backfield in the country.”
“He was the No. 1 dual-threat QB in the class of 2022, and when, after weeks of speculation and expectation, he took over for the struggling DJ Uiagalelei in the ACC championship, he proceeded to obliterate North Carolina’s defense, going 20-for-24 for 279 yards and a touchdown. He has all the tools, he has exciting young receivers (Antonio Williams, Beaux Collins, Cole Turner) and he has a workhorse back next to him in Will Shipley. No one would be surprised if he turned himself into a front-runner rather quickly,” Bill Connelly wrote.
