Hill expected to be in mix of crowded Hawkeye backfield

Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Former Cedar Falls star Barkley Hill could be in the mix of what's becoming a pretty crowded Hawkeye runningback depth chart.

It appears as many as nine tailbacks will get a chance to take reps when camp opens this August. Hill missed all of the 2012 season after suffering a knee injury in preseason---but coach Kirk Ferentz said today Hill is making good progress .

Jordan Canzieri also missed last season with a knee injury--but he returned and had a solid spring...

Right now with six healthy runningbacks already on campus and with three freshmen tailbacks joining the Hawks in August-- running back depth--- for once---- does not seem to be an issue.
