Star Alabama WR DeVonta Smith has been awarded the 2020 Heisman Trophy after his incredible season that included 105 catches for 1,641 yards and 20 touchdowns.
NICK BROMBERG: Alabama's DeVonta Smith became the first wide receiver in nearly 30 years to take home the Heisman Trophy on Tuesday night. Smith beat out teammate Mac Jones, Clemson's Trevor Lawrence and Florida's Kyle Trask to become the first wide receiver since 1991, and Desmond Howard, to win the Heisman trophy.
Simply put, Smith was the most dynamic offensive player in college football in 2020. He had 105 catches for over 1,600 yards and 22 total touchdowns. No other receiver had over 100 catches and no other receiver had 20 touchdown catches like Smith did. Smith is part of the most awesome offense in college football with Jones and running back Najee Harris. And Alabama prepares to take on Ohio State in the National Championship game on January 11th.
If Smith didn't win the Heisman this year, it's going to be hard to see when a wide receiver could win the Heisman. He was the only receiver among the three finalists. And a quarterback had won the Heisman Trophy every year since Derrick Henry took home the award in 2015.
