As USC enters "phase two" of the spring practice session, some units appear strong, and while rotation orders may still require clarification, for the most part, the main actors have been identified.
For a strong stable of 2013 Trojan running backs, this is only partially true.
Although the perception is that senior Silas Redd has the starting position locked down, his recent knee injury has somewhat muddled the expectations because with injuries, nothing can be taken for granted.
Still, Redd is expected to recover by the start of fall practice, and when he does, he will be the clear cut favorite to be the No. 1 guy in this stable of runners.
But who else will join Redd in the rotation?
This slideshow will look at some of the candidates that hope to make a difference for USC's running game this year.

Now let's find out what the pecking order of this unit will be.
Factors used to determine the order of this list include overall talent, experience, type of running back and reliability among other considerations.
