The Spring RB Situation

It’s going to be very interesting.

With the three senior backs gone, Hill sitting out the spring, and exciting recruits like Canadian speedster Chuba Hubbard and Georgia standout J.D. King yet to arrive, that means that the spotlight and the reps will go to junior-to-be Jeff Carr, red-shirt freshman and very promising talent La’Darren Brown, talented walk-on Ja’Ron Wilson, and NEO A&M J.C. transfer and Coweta High School product Jakeem Johnson.

It’s possible — probable? — that RB1, RB2 and RB3 for OSU next year will all miss Spring Ball. Justice Hill is out with injury and Chuba Hubbard and J.D. King are still in high school.

Omg.
