Ball was named one of five finalists for the prestigious award along with Alabama running back Trent Richardson, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III and LSU cornerback Tyrann Matthieu.

On Twitter, Ball celebrated by writing, "YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!" and "best Bday present!"

The winner will be announced Saturday night at the Heisman Trophy ceremony in New York.
