Eddie Gran talks competition at the running back spot

03/07/2017 06:01 PM

With the departures of Boom Williams and Jojo Kemp, Benny Snell is preparing to take on a bigger role next season in the Kentucky backfield.

While most would expect him to be the starter next season, offensive coordinator Eddie Gran says it’s too soon to make that call. He wants to see what junior Sihiem King, who has served primarily as a kick returner over the past few years, can bring to the Wildcat rushing attack.

Mark Krebs and TJ Beisner discuss the competition at the running back spot as the team goes through spring camp.
