Spring competition: RB 4 FB 1

John Hubert did a fantastic job as the starting RB last season. Hubert came through in several games (Miami and Iowa State come to mind) statistically, but in almost every game he did great job of blocking Collin Klein in the backfield while he found a hole or receiver. Angelo Pease did a fairly decent job of running the wildcat last season but don't be surprised to see redshirt freshman Daniel Sams lineup in that formation this year as he has great speed and can also pass. The likely backup to John Hubert this season will be DeMarcus Robinson but it just seems like every year we expect him to come in and be great and he just dissapoints so it may be a bit of a stretch to expect him to come through this year. At FB Braden Wilson has pretty much locked his spot down, as he did a great job blocking for Collin Klein and John Hubert last year. I would expect John Hubert to give up a little playing time this year to Robinson or Pease but it is awfully hard to find a reason to take snaps away from a guy who rushed for almost 1,000 yards the season before.
