Spartan 66 2011 Ranking #61

The Michigan State Spartans won a share of the Big Ten title in 2010. Last year, looked in-depth at sixty-six Spartans and their importance to the team's success. We look at 66 Spartans as 1966 was the last time MSU won a National Championship. It is now time to look at the #61 ranked Spartan in 2011.

Nick Hill

SD 2011 Ranking : #61

Position: Running Back

Experience : Redshirt Freshman

Strengths : Hill did get in one game a year ago, but ended up taking a redshirt. He now has been part of two springs and should provide solid back-up reps at running back and also reps on special teams.

Weakness : On field experience stuck behind great depth.

In another program, Nick Hill may already be in the two-deep at running back. However, with the depth the Spartans have with three top level performers ahead of him, Hill will have to make full use of any rep he gets.

Overall:Solid running back who has two years of spring practice behind him. Now will be Hill's chance to make sure he takes advantage of any reps he gets at running back early in the season.

Why He Made The List:Solid player who gives the Spartans great depth at the running back position. Should be a solid performer on special teams, and a valuable player on the roster if there is an injury to one of the big three backs.
