08:26 AM ET 11.09 | While at the moment Ohio State's running back cupboard feels a little bare, 2013 may bring a different story, which would hold consequences for Jordan Hall if he is granted a medical redshirt. One reason is that a couple of players who are part of the 2013 recruiting class -- running back Ezekiel Elliott and all-purpose back Jalin Marshall -- show the speed and elusiveness [Urban Meyer] seeks for that spot. A healthy Hall still would get his shot, especially at running back, but Ohio State appears to have a potential logjam there next year. Carlos Hyde has emerged as the starter and Rod Smith is becoming more of a factor each week. The coaches also like freshman Bri'onte Dunn [who suffered a knee injury in practice this week].
