Royster leads talented corps in backfield – CDT
Evan Royster returns to the Nittany Lion backfield after a 1200+ yard season. Behind him is the very fast Stephfon Green, who can score from any part of the field from either a handoff or a screen pass. Brent Carter, who is coming off an right ACL tear, has also done well in limited action.
I think that Royster’s thunder and Green’s lightning are going to help the offensive line out if used effectively. Royster just goes through people and Green runs past them. I’d love to see both of them in the backfield at times since the defense would have two very different styles to contend with this season. Perhaps Jay Paterno can deploy the I-formation on occasion.
