Jabrill Peppers discusses idea of staying at Michigan, his Heisman vote
Many expect that Jabrill Peppers will leave Michigan after his redshirt sophomore year and head off to the NFL.
Pretty much every 2017 mock draft has the Heisman Trophy finalist as a first-round pick.
On the Dan Patrick Show, Patrick told Peppers that he could do a Jim Harbaugh imitation because he was leaving Michigan.
Peppers didn’t bite.
“Well, I don’t know what I’m doing yet,” Peppers said.
Patrick then asked Peppers why he would stay at Michigan.
“To get a degree, try to finish some unfinished things here,” Peppers said. “Keep getting better, keep working on my craft. I don’t know, man. I’ve got a tough decision to make. But I’m not even thinking about that right now.”
Peppers also said that if he had a vote for the Heisman, it would go to Deshaun Watson because he beat Lamar Jackson in the regular season.
On Saturday night, Peppers will be in New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation. Before that, however, he’s up for a variety of individual honors at the Home Depot Awards Show in Atlanta. That’ll be on ESPN on Thursday night.
Peppers will have plenty of face time in the coming weeks. Perhaps he’ll have a televised announcement for his NFL decision, too.
