Jabrill Peppers has lived up to the Heisman Trophy chatter he’s been getting since the summer.
This week, YouTube user R Dula posted a Peppers hype video to help his cause and generate even more talk. It features pieces of a College GameDay segment on Peppers’ background and plenty of highlights from the 2016 season.
Watch it below.
Peppers has made 49 tackles, 11 for loss, and three sacks on defense this year playing safety, linebacker and wherever else the Wolverines need him.
On offense, Peppers has 153 yards from scrimmage and three scores. He’s averaged 17.1 yards per punt return, too.
The Heisman appears to be Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson’s to lose — he’s a 1-to-30 favorite — but Peppers is right in the mix. He’s considered among the top 5 choices by a handful of experts and his odds have shrunk to 10-to-1 since the start of the season, now the fourth best odds in the country.
