In fact, we’re only going to hear more and more about it as we near the start of the season.
They’re going to be the two favorites in the Heisman race, both will likely be top-two picks in the NFL draft and both are phenoms on the field.
As I’ve always said, I think Fields is a much better athlete who can make more plays with his legs. However, Lawrence has the better arm and is the better overall player in my mind.
You know what the fun part about this debate is? These two will be battling it out for the next 15 years, and I can’t wait to watch it unfold.
I wouldn’t be surprised at all if Clemson and Ohio State meet in the playoff again. Watching Fields and Lawrence face each other again would be awesome.
