Garrett GilbertThe 2009 Heisman was only awarded a week ago and we’re already moving on to 2010. College Football News has released a very early list of next year’s top contenders for college football’s biggest award and it’s mostly pretty solid. Sitting at number 15 is a quarterback who had less than 30 attempts and had no touchdowns passes this year.

Wait don’t get upset yet, that player is the likely 2010 starter at quarterback for the Longhorns. Here’s their blurb on why [tag]Garrett Gilbert[/tag] could already be a Heisman candidate:

15. Garrett Gilbert, QB Texas
Remember, Vince Young couldn’t be replaced, either. Gilbert might be the most talented quarterback Mack Brown has ever coached.

Overall not a bad list, but think there are some weird names near the very top. [tag]Ohio State[/tag] quarterback Terrelle Pryor has shown zero flash of Heisman-caliber performance and appears to be getting worse (or being used worse by OSU coaches) each year. I also wonder if [tag]Alabama[/tag] defending winner Mark Ingram will be able to repeat with stud Trent Richardson taking more carries away next season.
