While Kyle Middlebrooks handled the majority of backup carries for the Arizona State Sun Devils last year, it isn't quite clear who will take such a role with Cameron Marshall leading the pact and Deantre Lewis back after missing all of last year.
Lewis still has some ground to make up after missing all of 2011, but he provides a much more ideal physicality for the position compared to Middlebrooks.
The more surprising potential candidate is James Morrison, who has looked strong thus far. The senior back hasn't been given much of a chance over the course of his career, but things could be looking brighter if he keeps up the strong spring.
Marshall is dealing with an ankle injury, but there is no reason to think he won't be ready to a return at the beginning of the season.
Nothing yet from big offseason recruitment D.J. Foster since he has yet to graduate high school and enroll at ASU, but the young man should enter the fold as soon as he is able to join practices.
