New York – Ohio State Quarterback CJ Stroud He had a great first season as a Buckeyes rookie and was rewarded this weekend with a trip to New York City as a Heisman Cup finalist. He’s joined by the three Big Apple finalists: the Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, Michigan defensive end Aidan Hutchinson Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Beckett.
But if it was up to Stroud, he’d like to have his teammates with him for this special moment. When asked which teammates specifically he would like to bring with him on his first trip to New York City on Friday while he was with the media ahead of Saturday’s party, Stroud gave two.
“probably Mian WilliamsHe said, “I’m back.” Because that’s like my best friend on the team. This is my leg. Either he or (wide receiver) Jaxon (Smith Ngigba). These are my comrades. I’d like everyone to come but maybe these two are the ones closest to them.”
Williams, a first-year red student who was in Stroud’s class of 2020. Originally an Iowa-bound, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio and expected to win three stars, Williams switched to scarlet and gray after being offered a scholarship some time ago. Short of the start of the early signing period.
In four games last season, Williams had 10 campaigns for 64 yards. His best college football semifinal performance came against Clemson when he had three moves for 21 yards, including 15 yards.
Williams started 2021 as a start back for Stroud. However, the new student in the red rose saw that his image was decreasing due to the appearance of a real new student Trivon Henderson He also missed three games. Williams still finished the regular season with 490 yards and three touchdowns on 69 coaches.
In addition to his ability on the court, Williams also appears to have a respectable sense of style. Stroud was asked about his wardrobe at the Heisman show – he wears a custom suit with photos of the former Heisman winners inside – and which teammate to go to for fashion advice.
After thinking about it, and not wanting to say he’s the best fashion designer in Ohio, he settled on the departing Buckeye and Williams.
“I’d say a former teammate, he’s now in Bama, but Jameson WilliamsStroud said. He can wear. Yes sure. That’s my dog over there. He can wear clothes. Someone on my team now, I would probably say Mian Williams. He was well dressed, and my run showed up.”
Smith Ngigba is one of the players that Stroud is credited with helping him make his way to Ohio State. Throughout the season, he discusses the friendship between his classmates.
Smith-Njigba, a former five-star prospect, played in seven games, racking up 10 assists for 49 yards and touchdowns. As a sophomore, Smith-Njigba emerged this year as Stroud’s top target, leading the Buckeyes in receptions (80) and receiving yards (1,259) while placing third in touchdowns (6).
Of course two years ago, two of his co-stars Scarlet and Gray made the trip to New York for a Heisman party. In 2019, Ohio State Quarterback Justin Fields And Buckeye’s defensive end Chase Young Both were selected as finalists. The award eventually went to LSU, and formerly Scarlet and Gray, quarterback Joe Borough, with Fields taking third place in the vote, behind Team Oklahoma Galen Hurts The young man finishes fourth.
