The Ohio State University has a deep stable of running backs heading into the 2011 season—but which one will lead the Buckeyes in rushing yards at season's end?
If this question would have been asked eight months ago, the obvious choice would have been Dan Herron, who rushed for 1155 yards in 2010. With Dan Herron suspended for the first five games of the season, the position appears to be open for competition and the Buckeye's have four backs who will all battle for carries during the first five games of the season.
Which ever running back who shows the most promise during the fist five games of the season should be the man who shares the load once Dan Herron returns.
With true freshman quarterback Braxton Miller likely to be the Buckeyes starter come Week one, one can bet that Luke Fickell will utilize his deep and talented crop of running backs.
