Will Grier and West Virginia have already begun a Heisman Trophy campaign with a website and all.
Well, if that's going to come to fruition, Grier will live up to expectations of being the preseason Big 12 offensive player of the year.
Grier headlined the list of preseason honorees released by the conference on Wednesday, voted upon by members of the media who cover the conference.
TCU defensive end Ben Banogu was selected as the defensive player of the year, and Oklahoma defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles as newcomer of the year.
