2012 Heisman Trophy: Ka'Deem Carey projected to finish 16th

Jason O. Watson

Carey broke numerous Pac-12 and Arizona records this past season as a sophomore. He is expected to receive Heisman votes on Saturday night.

Ka'Deem Carey burst onto the national scene this past year. After splitting carries as a freshman in 2011, Carey became the Arizona Wildcats' featured tailback under Rich Rodriguez in 2012. The sophomore responded with 1,757 rushing yards, 20 touchdowns, 33 catches, 288 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown.

Not too bad for a guy who played his high school football about 15 miles north of the University of Arizona.

According to a report from Ryan Finley of the Arizona Daily Star, Carey is projected to finish 16th in Heisman Trophy voting on Saturday night. As Stiff Arm Trophy details, look for UA's star to receive a third-place vote or two. Given that he was second in the NCAA in rushing yards, as well the most yards from scrimmage, it's a well-deserved honor for the young running back.

Carey will return to Arizona next season and will undoubtedly be named a Heisman frontrunner at the start of the year. Here is a promo video the school has already released for his 2013 campaign.
