Perhaps the fact Baker Mayfield didn’t make the final cut for the 2015 Heisman Trophy will be another chip on the shoulder of a former walk-on.
Oklahoma is getting set to play Clemson in a national semifinal, but Mayfield won’t be among the finalists for the Heisman while Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson will along with Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey and Alabama’s Derrick Henry.
Mayfield is a former walk-on at Texas Tech and then lost the starting quarterback job there before leaving and becoming a walk-on at Oklahoma where he took over the starting quarterback job before the season.
Mayfield has accounted for 42 touchdowns and just five interceptions this season.
They just woke up an even bigger monster," teammate Zack Sanchez tweeted out after Mayfield was left off the finalist list.
