Six Pac-12 players made the initial 28-player Heisman Trophy Watch List, published by the Heisman Pundit blog.
The Pac-12 players are:
Ka'Deem Carey, Jr., RB, Arizona
Kevin Hogan, So., QB, Stanford
Brett Hundley, So., QB, UCLA
Marqise Lee, Jr., WR, USC
Marcus Mariota, So., QB, Oregon
De'Anthony Thomas, Jr., RB, Oregon
Makes sense. And if you were making a list of the top 10 candidates, both Lee and Mariota would surely be on it.
You potentially could add Arizona State QB Taylor Kelly and Washington RB Bishop Sankey to the list, but these six probably already register in the minds of Heisman voters even outside the West Coast.
Obviously, guys will be added and subtracted from the list as the season wears on.
