If you don't know who Justin Herbert is, now's the time to join the Herbert hype train.
As the starting quarterback for the Oregon Ducks, Herbert is one of the most underrated players in college football and deserves to be fully appreciated for his talent.
He could be the first QB taken in next year’s NFL draft. And he’ll definitely beat you in golf. Oregon QB Justin Herbert is the guy to watch and get to know this Saturday https://t.co/mvYIXlBdYD— Edward Aschoff (@AschoffESPN) September 21, 2018
As the under-ranked Ducks prepare to face the undefeated Stanford Cardinals this weekend, Herbert is ready to let the world know his name.
The first true freshman to start as QB in 33 years for the Ducks is averaging 280 yards passing with 12 touchdowns. The now-junior is showing off incredible passing attributes that could make him a top NFL draft target. Also, Oregon is averaging a PAC-12 best 51.7 ppg this season. No big deal or anything.
I think Justin Herbert has a great chance at being the first QB drafted in April. That is, if he declares for the draft.— Jon Ledyard (@LedyardNFLDraft) September 13, 2018
I wrote about Herbert's game, why the NFL will love him and why none of that may matter in the endhttps://t.co/aeuso2QAQU
If Ducks get a win over the Cardinal, there's no doubt that Herbert will rocket up the list of Heisman candidates.
The Ducks and Cardinal face off at 8:00 EST on ABC this Saturday.
