We know that Silas Redd is going to be the leader on offense, especially in the running game.
Penn State will use this spring to dig up the rest of the supporting cast in the backfield.
Curtis Dukes is focusing on academics this spring instead of football activity, but Bill O'Brien does expect him to be ready for the fall.
In the meantime, Penn State is working former wideout Bill Belton at tailback and O'Brien has big hopes for incoming freshman Akeel Lynch (who will not be in practices until the summer).
Other names to watch this spring include Mike Zordich and Zach Zwinak at the fullback position.
Zordich has been the primary fullback recently and should be the favorite to retain the starting job in the fall, but Zwinak could be ready to make a push for some playing time.
