With the transfer of Silas Redd to USC, much of the attention at the running back position has been with sophomore Bill Belton, the likely starter on September 1st.  But with the uncertainty on how Belton can handle the load of starting back in the Big 10,  the depth at running back will be tested.  Curtis Dukes is a known quantity, but the early reports on Lynch have been promising.  Before he announced his intention to stay with Penn State, a fellow member of the freshman class called Lynch one of the most athletic players on the team.  Expect him to get a chance early to show what he can do, and expect him to be impressive.
