With college football kicking off last week, we wanted to take a look at ESPN's Top 5 Heisman Hopefuls. Follow these guys on social media to see some cool behind the scenes action on their chase to win the Heisman Trophy and compete for a National Championship.
Derrick Henry RB Alabama
After 1,547 yards rushing and 14 TDs last season, we expect to see big things from Nick this year. But it sounds like he will be doing most of his talking on the field. When asked why don’t you ever Tweet or Instagram, Chubb replied “You ever seen a Lamborghini commercial? Don’t gotta advertise.” Touché.
Braxton Miller WR The Ohio State University
After a pre-season injury kept Miller out all last season, he is back and ready to play. Sliding over to a new role at WR, he turned some heads and broke some ankles with some incredible spins moves during the Virginia Tech opener. Braxton is pretty active on social media. His buddy LeBron James has been known to give him and the Buckeyes some love during the game.
Ezekiel Elliott RB The Ohio State University
Elliot, aka “Hero in a half shirt” aka “In Crop we trust,” is a monster on the field and a character off the field. He shares pics of teammates, custom shoes, and cryo baths. He gives shoutouts to fellow crop rockers #InCropsWeTrust and visits a lot of kids in the hospitals.
Trevone Boykin QB TCU
After some initial uncertainty, the starting role was awarded to Trevone last year. After and amazing 2015, TCU fans will have really high expectations for him this year. His Instagram has lots of game pics, selfies and shots of his pit bulls, Taz and Cookie.
Cardale Jones QB The Ohio State University
Cardale is best known for carrying the OSU to the national title last year after the starting QB was injured. He is #7 on the list, but he is just too entertaining on social media, so we had to include him. He shares a lot of cool shots with the team, hanging out with his daughter and rocking his Ronda Rousey gear.
As the season progresses, expect to see hear these names and a definitely few more new ones. Leave comments below to let us know what college football players you love to follow.
