Ohio State University CJ Stroud, selected as finalist for the Heisman Trophy

Stroud leads the nation’s top offenses and ranks among the top seven passers-by in eight categories.

Columbus, Ohio — Ohio State University Quarterback CJ Stroud is one of the four finalists of the 2021 Heisman Trophy.

Other finalists announced at ESPN on Monday night include Michigan’s defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, pit quarterback Kenny Pickett, and Alabama quarterback Bryce Young.

Stroud leads the nation’s top offenses and ranks among the top seven passers-by in eight categories. His 70.9% completion rate and 351.1 yards per game will be the record for the school’s single season.

Last week, Stroud was named Offensive Player of the Year, Quarterback of the Year, and Freshman of the Year at the Big Ten Conference. This is the first time a player has received all three in the same season.

Bryce Young of Alabama likes to win this year’s Heisman Trophy. As a result, Alabama will win the championship in a row. Wide receiver DeVonta Smith won this award last season.

Seasonal statistics for the four finalists:

  • Bryce Young: 4,322 yards, 43 TD, 4 INT
  • CJ Stroud: 3,862 yards, 38 TD, 5 INT
  • Kenny Pickett: 4,319 yards, 42 TD, 7 INT
  • Aidan Hutchinson: 33 tackles, 14 sack, 3 forced fumble

Winners of the 87th Heisman Trophy will be announced at a ceremony airing on ESPN at 8 pm on Saturday.
