Peppers, a Montclair, New Jersey native, is one of the five finalists being considered for 2016.
This time in NY with the Heisman Trophy on the line. The engine behind Clemson's return to the College Football Playoff, he led the Atlantic Coast Conference in attempts, completions, passing yards and touchdowns during the regular season.
Five players were announced Monday on ESPN as Heisman finalists and will make the trip to NY for Saturday's presentation: Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson, a finalist for a second consecutive season; Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson; Oklahoma teammates Baker Mayfield and Dede Westbrook; and MI linebacker Jabrill Peppers.
Jabrill Peppers is headed to New York City.

WORST GAME: It seems insane to label an ACC-record-setting performance as Watson's worst game, but his 580 yards passing against Pitt were offset by three interceptions - and the last two led to Panthers touchdowns in their 43-42 victory at Death Valley last month.
Watson has finished strong, connecting on 138 of 186 passes for 1586 yards and 15 touchdowns over the last five games. They lost three games and we lost one by one point. The final pick at the Pitt goal line with Clemson driving for a potential clinching score sprung Pitt linebacker Saleem Brightwell for a 70-yard return that led to a crucial TD. While 2016 was a disappointment in some people's eyes, early losses obscured another great season from the Texas Tech transfer, who threw for 38 touchdowns and rushed for another six. He was most effective running in the postseason, getting 68 carries and 349 yards in the ACC title game and the teams two College Football Playoff games last season.
Mayfield finished fourth last season, but did not get an invitation to attend the Heisman presentation in NY. I'm so happy that the voters decided that we need defensive players in this.
Watson played in 13 games while leading Clemson to the ACC title, while the other Heisman finalists played in 12.
Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is the heavy favorite to win on Saturday night after piling up 51 total touchdowns this season.
