But don’t expect Griffin to reveal his choice.
“I don’t know who’s going to win," Griffin said at Redskins Park this week. "I haven’t asked any other Heisman voters what their vote was, or who it was for."
He added: “I don’t plan on disclosing my vote.”
“Any one of those guys that wins definitely deserves it,” Griffin said.
If Manziel wins, he’ll become the third consecutive dual-threat quarterback to claim college football’s top honor, joining Griffin and former Auburn signal caller Cam Newton. Manziel would also become the first freshman to win the award.
