The Razorbacks have a bevy of talented running backs, and both Dennis Johnson and Knile Davis can carry the load. It may be unfair to call this a position battle, as Davis will hold the top spot, but while recovering from an ankle injury that cost Davis all of last season, Johnson is making a case for more carries.
Davis has been held out of contact drills, and Johnson is not skipping a beat.
In the first scrimmage of the spring, Johnson led all rushers with 80 yards and three scores and looked as though he was in midseason form.
This kind of depth is one of the reasons the Razorbacks will be a competitive team in 2012.
