ESPN SEC football analyst Jordan Rodgers believes it's time for Ole Miss running back Quinshon Judkins to enter the Heisman conversation.

The Rebels' freshman phenom went for 205 yards and a touchdown in the team's 31-28 win over conference foe Texas A&M on Saturday.

Prompting Rodgers to tweet: “Quinshon Judkins, he should be in the Heisman conversation… He has been unbelievable.”

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin also chimed in on social media by resharing a meme of him during Judkins' recruitment:

Judkins has already topped 1,000 rushing yards on the season with 13 touchdowns and a ridiculous 5.8 yards per carry.

With a huge SEC West matchup against the Crimson Tide next week, another monster performance for the Alabama native could go a long way in him being a very real candidate to take home college football's most prestigious honor.
