Michigan Football’s versatile star Jabrill Peppers is heading to New York.

The junior was named a Heisman Trophy finalist on Monday evening, joining Louisville QB Lamar Jackson, Clemson QB Deshaun Watson and a pair of Sooners in QB Baker Mayfield and RB Dede Westbrook.

Jackson should win this trophy in a landslide, but it is big for the Wolverines to have a player as a finalist. The last time it happened was in 2003 when Chris Perry was invited.

Peppers made a splash in all three phases of the game for the Wolverines this season. He had 66 total tackles (13 for loss) and one interception playing a linebacker/safety hybrid on the Michigan defense. Offensively he had 170 total yards and three touchdowns to go along with 570 kick and return yards and a touchdown there as well.

The winner will be announced this Saturday night, Dec. 10.
