Trey Sermon had the opportunity to compete with two of the best quarterbacks in college football. In 2017, it was Baker Mayfield. In 2018, it was Kyler Murray. Both ended up winning the Heisman Trophy.

Now, after transferring from Oklahoma, Sermon will get to play with a third potential Heisman Trophy candidate. The former Sooner will line up with Justin Fields this season, who was a finalist for the most prestigious individual award in college football last year.

Sermon and Fields have only practiced together so far, with the first game not scheduled until Oct. 24. Still, the running back compared his new teammate to one of his former Sooner teammates.

According to Dan Hope of Eleven Warriors, Sermon said that Fields reminded him more of Murray than of Mayfield. That’s probably in big part due to Fields’ ability to maneuver with his legs, as well cause damage through the air with his arm.

Murray ended his career at Oklahoma in 2018 with 4,361 passing yards and 42 touchdown tosses with just 7 interceptions with a 69% completion rate. He also rushed for 1,001 yards and 12 scores for the Sooners, leading them to a College Football Playoff appearance.

Last season, Fields threw for 3,273 yards and 41 touchdowns with just 3 picks and a 67.2% completion rate. His rushing total ended at 484 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Will Sermon have the privilege of playing with three Heisman Trophy winners in his career? Fields will certainly be one of the top candidates for the award again this fall.
