Through the first three weeks of spring practice, there are four different tailbacks who have been working with Northern Illinios quarterback Chandler Harnish and the starting offensive line. JUCO transfer Jamal Womble, converted receiver Akeem Daniels, Jasmin Hopkins, and Leighton Settle are all competing to replace Chad Spann. Hopkins has the most experience with Womble being biggest back with the most impressive skill set. Daniels is a former fly-sweep specialist.
Despite having four horses in one stable, look for Womble to steal the show with Hopkins being a nice complement.
