Video: Spring ASU RB Analysis

Even with senior D.J. Foster moving to wide receiver, Arizona State looks to be loaded in the backfield in 2015 with a dynamic sophomore duo of Demario Richard and Kalen Ballage leading the way.

Even with senior D.J. Foster moving to wide receiver, Arizona State looks to be loaded in the backfield in 2015 with a dynamic sophomore duo of Demario Richard and Kalen Ballage leading the way.

Richard, 5-foot-10 and 219 pounds, is a natural inside zone runner with great strength and pad level who protects well and can slide out to the slot and catch the football.

Ballage, at 6-foot-3, 227 pounds, was one of ASU's overall most improved players on the roster this spring, having gained 15 pounds and become a more physical ball carrier.

The Sun Devils also have a game changing speedster at the position, junior De'Chavon Hayes, and a sturdy and versatile true freshman, Nick Ralston.
