Names like Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Spencer Rattler and North Carolina Tarheels quarterback Sam Howell have been floated around all offseason as Heisman Trophy hopefuls.

It’s time, however, to talk about Texas Longhorns sophomore running back Bijan Robinson.

Against the TCU Horned Frogs, Robinson turned in a landmark performance in which he carried the ball 35 times for 216 yards and two touchdowns, plus two receptions for 22 yards. So, folks, it’s time to start floating the 19-year-old Longhorn’s name around.
