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

Tre Harris (WR, Ole Miss)

985 yards and eight touchdowns. Those were Tre Harris’ numbers last year in his first season in Oxford. The fifth year senior will return to the Rebels.

Given head coach Lane Kiffin’s high powered offense and returning quarterback Jaxson Dart who will be going into his third season as the Rebels starting quarterback, look for an instant connection between Dart and Harris to be utilized often in 2024.

Yes, it is worth pointing out that the Rebels are loaded at pass catcher with other options like wide receiver Antwan “Juice” Wells Jr. and tight end Caden Prieskorn, but the long shot odds given the Rebels’ offensive abilities under Kiffin are worth the risk here.

Harris is listed at +30000 on FanDuel for Heisman odds.

Raheim Sanders (RB, Arkansas)

The former Arkansas Razorbacks running back will be the primary options in the backfield for the South Carolina Gamecocks after transferring to Columbia this past spring. Before an injury plagued 2023 campaign, Sanders rushed for 1.443 yards and 10 touchdowns his sophomore season in Arkansas.

If the offensive line can hold up along with good quarterback play from first year starting quarterback LaNorris Sellers, this could be a great value pick for Heisman.
