Ka'Deem Carey will finish tied for 16th in Heisman Trophy voting, according to a website that has accurately predicted the last 10 winners.
StiffArmTrophy.com has Carey garnering six third-place votes, giving him 0.2 percent of the totals. The projections, if true, will make Carey the first-ever Arizona Wildcats player to earn a Heisman vote.
That would mean "a lot," Carey said this week. The Heisman Trophy winner will be announced at 6 p.m. Saturday on ESPN.
"It would mean that my fans are out there rooting for me," Carey said. "It’s an honor. Just getting recognized, it’s great."
Just a sophomore, Carey leads the nation with 146.42 rushing yards per game and is second in total rushing with 1,757 yards. The Sporting News and Walter Camp both named Carey a first-team All-American this week, making him Arizona’s first since Antoine Cason in 2007.
