Fox Sports: Analysis of Current Heisman Prospects

Here’s the link.

Cal Excerpts:

Under “No Current Chance To Win It, But Has Finalist Potential”:

RB Justin Forsett, Sr., California

Last Week: 26 carries for 156 yards and a touchdown, along with a catch for 49 yards, in the 45-31 win over Tennessee.

While Forsett's not flashy like past Cal stars J.J. Arrington and Marshawn Lynch, he'll put up big numbers in one of the nation's most prolific offenses. Consider him the West Coast version of Mike Hart; more of a most valuable player than a most outstanding player.


Under “On The Radar, But The World Is Looking For More”:

Last Week: Four catches for 45 yards, one carry for 21 yards, and one punt return for 77 yards and a score in the 45-31 win over Tennessee.

He's likely to be out of the mix in a hurry unless he starts to light it up as a receiver; no one with a brain is going to kick the ball his way. To be in the Heisman race, he needs to come up with a highlight play every week to make up for the lack of statistics.
