Michigan State Football: Who should be Spartans’ No. 1 RB in 2019?

With LJ Scott departing for the NFL after an up-and-down Michigan State football career, the Spartans are looking for that clear starting running back to run the show.

There are plenty of options to take over as the No. 1 back, but who should it be?

The starter in the backfield won’t truly matter until the offensive line is re-tooled and more efficient. That was a major problem for the run game last year which is why no running back averaged more than 5.0 yards per carry — and Scott was averaging an ugly 3.3 yards per touch.
