Who would have though that two years after Adrian Peterson left
DeMarco Murray highlights the talented stable of backs and has OU fans salivating to see what he can do as the feature back in 2008.
From this point on it gets really tricky because there is a log-jam of talent waiting to get on the field. Sophomore Mossis Madu has an advantage over the remaining backs because of his on field experience. Madu logged two rushing touchdowns in 2007. Freshman Justin Johnson was on campus during the spring and earned valuable reps as well as experience. Then there is prized recruit Jermie Calhoun who some have described as a three-year player much like Peterson was.
All five of these guys will most likely make their way on the field at some point this season with the coaches narrowing down the number of backs who get playing time by before conference play begins.
