I know Borges had stated he may use a 3rd down back this season in his press conference a few days back. But it was revealed today that Michigan will be using a 3rd down back and that player has already been named the third down back. Jackson stated he will not reveal who that player is, but it will be obvious when the team plays Western.
My question is ... who do you feel the 3rd down back is? Apparently it will be a back that is not going to be amongst the final few backs considered to be a starter this season. I know a lot are thinking Vincent Smith, but I have to assume he is going to battle down to end for the staring spot.
What are your thoughts? Toussaint or Hayes maybe? I know Jackson is very high on Rawls and Hayes .... could we possibly see Rawls as the starter and Hayes as the 3rd down back at some point this season?
EDIT: Link to article stating the 3rd down back has already been chosen:
