One of the biggest blows to the football team last season was the loss of Josh Clemons, the talented freshman running back who tore his meniscus against South Carolina. Clemons, who was one of the only signs of life on offense last season, has been rehabbing from the injury ever since, and today, Joker Phillips says that they will only let him work two days a week during the fall camp to protect his knee heading into the season.
He’ll have some help in the backfield, with what Joker described as one of the most competitive positions on the team. Other running backs in the corps include CoShik Williams and Raymond Sanders, who were starters for most of the season, Jonathan George, and “SEC-type” freshmen Dyshawn Mobley (he can deadlift 700 lbs!) and Justin Taylor.
Depth and experience at running back? I’ll take it.
