Now in the NFL, Wilson is serving as somewhat of a Twitter hype man for his former QB.Late Saturday night, while Hurts was busy carving up the UCLA Bruins, Wilson endorsed the Oklahoma quarterback for the Heisman Trophy.What is interesting about this is that Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama’s current quarterback and another old teammate of Wilson’s, is also a bona fide Heisman candidate.We don’t think Wilson means to disrespect Tua in any way, he’s just riding heavy for Hurts.JHurts4Heisman 🔥— Mack Wilson (@5mackwilson1) September 15, 2019Both Hurts and Tua are playing out of their mind right now. Hurts has produced 1,253 total yards and 13 total touchdowns in three games for his new program, while Tua has 12 touchdowns and no interceptions for the Crimson Tide.These two programs met last season in the College Football Playoff. A Tua vs. Hurts matchup in the playoff this year would be must-see TV.last_img read more
