With spring football wrapping up across the country, oddsmakers have gotten a better feel for which players could be in the running for the 2022 Heisman Trophy.

Florida Gators Anthony Richardson's showing in UF's Orange and Blue Game sure left a strong impression on the evaluators.

After debuting with 50/1 odds to win the 2022 Heisman Trophy from BetOnline.ag in December 2021, Richardson has soared up the board, now sitting comfortably with the seventh-best odds in college to football at 22/1 by the same outlet.

Richardson wowed spectators in Florida's spring game last Thursday, completing 18-of-24 passes for 207 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 22 yards and a score. 

2022 will be Richardson's first season as the Gators' unquestioned starting quarterback. He flashed brilliance in a backup role behind Emory Jones a season ago before suffering several injuries that derailed his campaign, finishing the year completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 529 yards, six touchdowns and five interceptions, adding 501 rushing yards and three scores on the ground.

With Billy Napier and a new coaching staff in town to go with Jones' transfer portal departure, Richardson is looking to carry his offseason momentum into the upcoming season and turn the Gators around after a disappointing year in 2021.
