Clemson's Trevor Lawrence and Ohio State's Justin Fields were in the same high school class coming out of the same state, Georgia. While Lawrence was an immediate star, Fields didn't blossom until transferring after his freshman season. They met in the Fiesta Bowl, with Lawrence leading Clemson to a win in the national semifinals.

Come the start of the 2020 season, the Tigers and Buckeyes will be at or near the top of every preseason poll. Just as the two teams stand poised to battle for the national championship, Lawrence and Fields will enter next season as the overwhelming co-favorites for the Heisman Trophy.

LOOKING AHEAD: Clemson leads early Top 25 for the 2020 season

One running back expected to throw his hat into the ring for the NFL, Oklahoma State's Chuba Hubbard, instead opted to return for his redshirt junior season. Over with the Cowboys' in-state rival, Spencer Rattler is ready to be the latest Oklahoma quarterback to be a Heisman factor after redshirting this season behind Jalen Hurts.

Clemson's Trevor Lawrence doesn't want to sit out junior year, so stop asking if he should

  Clemson's Trevor Lawrence doesn't want to sit out junior year, so stop asking if he should Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has no plans to sit out his junior year, and that is the right decision for the future No. 1 pick.The sophomore quarterback again squashed the notion that he would consider sitting out his junior season after Clemson plays in the College Football Playoff championship game against LSU at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday. Lawrence made it clear he plans on coming back for his junior season no matter what happens.

But Dabo Swinney, Trevor Lawrence and the Tigers are projected to be back, according to betting odds. He’s the early Heisman Trophy favorite, according to sportsbetting.ag, ahead of Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields , Southern Cal quarterback Kedon Slovis and Oklahoma State running back

Here's how things shake out as we get ready for the long offseason:

QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson

In a way, that Lawrence struggled in Clemson's loss to LSU may help him avoid the inevitable backlash that often comes with being anointed the top prospect in a given draft class. It might also spark a monster junior season: Lawrence will almost certainly be motivated to make up for his first career loss.

QB Justin Fields, Ohio State

The preseason Heisman field will have Lawrence and Fields — or Fields and Lawrence, depending on how you feel — and then a wide gap of space. Look for Fields to be even better as a second-year starter with the Buckeyes in 2020, though he'll have less help in the backfield with running back J.K. Dobbins headed to the NFL along with several key receivers departed.

RB Chuba Hubbard, Oklahoma State

Hubbard's decision to come back in 2020 is surprising on its face, given the recent trend for productive backs to leap to the NFL in the first shot at draft eligibility. Then again, this year's class is loaded at the position, with Dobbins, Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor, Clemson's Travis Etienne and others topping the rankings, so returning for his junior campaign might only help Hubbard's draft stock.

Trevor Lawrence enters 2020 offseason as Heisman favorite. Despite the struggles, Trevor Lawrence hasn’t lost all of the Heisman shine as one offshore sportsbook has him listed as a Five other returning players will start the offseason at 10/1, including Oklahoma State running back Chuba

QB Spencer Rattler, Oklahoma

There's nothing to go on in terms of experience, even if Rattler did replace Hurts in the fourth quarter of the Sooners' blowout loss to LSU in the Peach Bowl. This is more about his potential, which has been obvious for years, and coach Lincoln Riley's recent track record of development at the position. Expect Oklahoma's offense to regain the throwing success it had under Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray.

LB Micah Parsons, Penn State

The next great Penn State linebacker, Parsons will enter his junior season as the preseason favorite for most major defensive awards after a dominant showing in the Nittany Lions' win against Memphis in the Cotton Bowl. His freakish athletic gifts should help Parsons put together the sort of highlight reel a defender needs to factor into the Heisman race.

QB Kedon Slovis, Southern California

Slovis threw for 3,502 yards and 30 touchdowns as a freshman despite not playing in most or all of three games, which speaks to his overlooked ability as a recruit and the friendliness of offensive coordinator Graham Harrell's scheme. Like most second-year starters, Slovis will take another step forward in 2020. He needs his team to do the same, however.

How Joe Burrow’s Heisman speech raised thousands for Ohio charity

  How Joe Burrow’s Heisman speech raised thousands for Ohio charity Joe Burrow is attempting to lead LSU to college football immortality. But the Heisman-winning quarterback has already attained that for the good he promoted after winning college football's most illustrious award.The second-year LSU signal-caller is one game away from leading LSU to just the second 15-0 season in modern college football history. And it's not unfair to say the biggest reason the Tigers are here is because of the incredible season Burrow has had.

QB Sam Ehlinger, Texas

There's power in being the starting quarterback at Texas, but only if Texas shakes off last year's mediocrity to make a run at the Big 12 championship and New Year's Six. If not, Ehlinger will put up solid numbers for a team that falls short of expectations while fourth-year coach Tom Herman's job security dominates headlines.

CB Derek Stingley Jr., LSU

Clemson tested Stingley just six times through the air during the national championship. The Tigers knew what Stingley was capable of as a freshman. As he heads into his second season, Stingley is a known commodity as a defender and might begin to dabble in things on the offensive side of the ball, giving him some more highlight moments for voters.

QB Sam Howell, North Carolina

After the most productive season by a freshman passer in Bowl Subdivision history, Howell returns as the face of a team aiming to vault into the Top 25. Even if Clemson rules the ACC, the Tar Heels could make noise as the best team in the Coastal Division and the Tigers' biggest threat. Howell will assume the mantle of college football's best quarterback as soon as 2021.

RB Kenneth Gainwell, Memphis

While he would've been the Tigers' biggest star had quarterback Brady White not come back in 2020, White's return will ensure the sort of balance on offense that helped Gainwell account for 2,069 yards of total offense during a terrific freshman season. Better yet, Gainwell figures to play a huge role for a team capable of making another New Year's Six bowl.

From Joe Burrow to Jalen Hurts, 2019 was the year of the transfer quarterbacks

  From Joe Burrow to Jalen Hurts, 2019 was the year of the transfer quarterbacks Transfer QBs and Clemson's playoff resume are among our biggest takeaways from the 2019-20 college football season.No. 1 LSU took down defending champion No. 3 Clemson in the College Football Playoff National Championship game Monday in New Orleans. Quarterback Joe Burrow stunned and enjoyed the victory like a legend, coach Ed Orgeron said he planned to celebrate with a ham sandwich and Odell Beckham Jr. was so fired up about his team winning that he passed out cash to the players, which the school then claimed was fake so they don't get into trouble with the NCAA.

The wild cards

That includes the to-be-named starting quarterbacks at LSU and Alabama. Houston transfer D'Eriq King, who may very well land at LSU, is another. Nebraska junior Adrian Martinez is an option, though he might need to retain his hold on the starting job at a position that coach Scott Frost hasn't publicly said is up for debate. Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond is the most experienced passer in the SEC. Alabama running back Najee Harris will return in 2020 and could be the centerpiece of the Crimson Tide's offense. Notre Dame quarterback Ian Book will soar up the list if he can carry into a strong November and bowl game into his final season. LSU wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase is the new face of the Tigers' offense, but what will that offense look like in 2020?
