Spring Preview: Running Backs

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Perhaps the greatest challenge on offense is filling the shoes of Doak Walker Award finalist and consensus All-American Javon Ringer, who rushed for 1,637 yards and a school-record 22 touchdowns in 2008. Ringer accounted for 97 percent of the team's rushing yards and 76 percent of its carries last season.

Three lettermen - A.J. Jimmerson, Andre Anderson and Ashton Leggett - along with red-shirt freshman Caulton Ray expect to get plenty of carries this spring. The Spartans also return two experienced fullbacks in Andrew Hawken and Josh Rouse.

Check out the exclusive video of assistant coach Dan Enos as he breaks down the running back and fullback positions.
