Longshot Heisman candidates from the SEC

While the main contenders are more obvious, people are always looking to cash in more on more of a longshot pre-season Heisman Trophy contender. In this article, I share my thoughts on some of the best longshot Heisman odds players from the SEC

Isaiah Bond (WR, Texas Longhorns)

Isaiah Bond is a name that took center stage nationally after his miraculous catch from Jalen Milroe for the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2023 Irom Bowl. Bond was second on the Tide in receiving last year with 668 yards and four touchdowns.

He has since transferred to Austin to play for the offensive minded Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns. Bond will be catching passes from Quinn Ewers who is a Heisman front runner. On a well-equipped offense, do not be surprised if Bonds production doubles this year.

His Heisman odds are +18000. I like these odds much more than Missouri’s Luther Burden who is the Tigers’ number one option for Brady Cook at +10000.

Taylen Green (QB, Arkansas)

Taylen Green is a name that will forever be linked to Arkansas offensive coordinator Bobby Petrino . Green is the transfer quarterback this past spring that newly hired Razorbacks coordinator Petrino hand-picked to be his quarterback out of the transfer portal for the 2024 season.

Green quickly took the reins after arriving on campus in the spring, gaining the trust of Petrino and the staff and was named the starting quarterback.

Green started the last two years for Boise State throwing for 3,794 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Given the fact that Green is a quarterback and who his coach is, I think he is worth the really long shot Heisman odds of +20000
