O.J. Simpson will help decide this year's Heisman Trophy winner.
Despite his legal troubles, the former USC running back was never stripped of his 1968 Heisman Trophy and, like all previous winners, had the opportunity to vote in the 2017 race.
Simpson, who was released from prison in October after serving a nine-year sentence, told TMZ Sports Monday that he used his vote, but didn't reveal his pick.
"Already put my vote in," Simpson said. "I thought it would be (Lamar) Jackson, (Sam) Darnold from USC and (Saquon) Barkley, who I love from Penn State. We got Baker Mayfield, we got this guy (Bryce) Love, from Stanford. So, who knows? They're all worthy."
The trophy will be awarded in New York Saturday night.
