EA Sports announced today that former Baylor University quarterback Robert Griffin III (above) will be one of two cover athletes on NCAA Football 13. Griffin was the first Baylor student-athlete to win the Heisman Trophy. He'll appear alongside a fellow Heisman trophy winner, which will be subject to a fan vote.
The vote to determine Griffin's fellow cover athlete will begin on March 12 at the NCAA Football Facebook page. You'll be able to choose between former college athletes Marcus Allen (RB, University of Southern California), Doug Flutie (QB, Boston College), Eddie George (RB, Ohio State University), Desmond Howard (WR, University of Michigan), Barry Sanders (RB, Oklahoma State University), Herschel Walker (RB, University of Georgia), Charlie Ward (QB, Florida State University), and Andre Ware (QB, University of Houston).
Griffin, otherwise known as RG3, was also given the Davey O'Brien Award and was named College Football Player of the Year 2011 by the Associated Press. He also was named the Big 12 Conference Offensive Freshman of the Year, and set a school rushing yard record for both a freshman and a quarterback.
NCAA Football 13 is in development by EA Tiburon, and will hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on July 10.
