CJ Stroud has had an excellent season for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

The junior quarterback led the Buckeyes to an 11-1 record while throwing for 3,340 yards, 37 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. He and the Buckeyes have more to prove with a spot in the College Football Playoff, too.

The Associated Press voted for National Player of the Year Thursday, picking USC quarterback Caleb Williams. Stroud, a Heisman finalist alongside Williams, finished 3rd in the voting.

Here is the full list of players who were voted in the top 5. (Not Stround)
