Deepest group in the nation?
Oklahoma State will enter the 2010 season with one of the deepest groups of running backs in the nation. Senior Kendall Hunter has looked outstanding during spring football and looks poised to battle for All-American honors this season. Expect Hunter to get at least 20 touches per game.
Behind Hunter, Travis Miller and Jeremy Smith are both having good springs. Miller has emerged as a playmaker with speed who new offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen said has similar traits to Hunter.
And Smith was the first name that came to Brandon Weeden’s mind when I asked who had impressed him this spring.
“He’s one of the three or four good backs who can really step in and make plays,” Weeden said. “It’s nice to see him out there and active.”
All-Big 12 fullback Bryant Ward was thrown into flux when Holgorsen arrived and eliminated the fullback position. But Holgorsen has plans to use Ward this season, even in one-back situations at times.
