Quinn Ewers Heisman Odds: Texas QB is Threat to Win Heisman in 2023

Latest Quinn Ewers Odds to Win Heisman Trophy

That has Ewers tied for the second-best odds among all players, alongside LSU Tigers' quarterback Jayden Daniels. The only player he's trailing in the odds is the reigning Heisman winner, USC's Caleb Williams (+550). 

While Ewers hasn't had much NCAA action yet, it's not hard to see why he's considered a legitimate threat to take home the hardware. The 20-year-old QB came into the college football scene with a 1.000 247Sports Composite ranking – the sixth player ever to hold that distinction. The only other quarterback prospect to do that was another Texas legend, Vince Young.

Ewers showed some of that potential in his first season as the starter. He nearly led Texas to a major upset over Alabama in Week 2, going 9-of-12 with 134 yards before being forced to leave with a shoulder injury that eventually caused him to miss four weeks. When he returned, he didn't look particularly effective, though he did show out in his final appearance of the year, going 31-of-47 for 369 yards and 1 touchdown. 

If he looks like that to start the year in 2023, he's got a legit shot at winning the Heisman this year. Here's a look at the rest of the top Heisman contenders this season, with odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.
