If Smith wins, he would be the first non-quarterback to claim the Heisman since 2015. The last two times a quarterback didn’t win the Heisman, it went to an Alabama running back. Derrick Henry was selected in 2015 and Mark Ingram earned the award in 2009.

A wide receiver hasn’t won the Heisman since Michigan’s Desmond Howard in 1991. The B1G’s last Heisman winner was Ohio State quarterback Troy Smith in 2006.
