On Saturday night, Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins will be in New York for the Heisman Trophy ceremony. Although he’s a long-shot to win the award, Haskins deserves to be mentioned among the college football elite after a tremendous season.
Haskins set several Big Ten records this season as he passed for over 4,500 yards and threw for 47 touchdowns. The star quarterback entered the year without a start under his belt, but led the Buckeyes to a Big Ten title and a berth to the Rose Bowl.
After the Big Ten title game, many wondered if Haskins would turn pro or remain with Ohio State. It appears he’s made a decision.
Haskins took to Twitter to say: “No matter what Buckeyes Nation it’s been a blast being your quarterback. Win or lose tonight, my dreams have been achieved. Thank you for your unwavering support and Go Bucks.”

Is this his goodbye to the Ohio State faithful, or is Haskins simply saying “thank you” for the support this season.
If he does decide to leave, ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. thinks Haskins will be one of the first quarterbacks taken in the draft – and might push Nick Bosa for the No. 1 pick.
