EAST LANSING - With seven solid running backs all competing for playing time, it would be easy to get lost in the shuffle.
For former Birmingham Brother Rice running back Caulton Ray, the challenge is to separate himself from a talented group in order to find a role on this team.
Ray rushed for 49 yards on 16 carries in Michigan State's second controlled scrimmage, but his longest run was just eight yards and he was bottled up for 12 yards in losses.
Still, he is getting a chance to show what he can do for the Spartans and head coach Mark Dantonio is watching to see who will emerge out of the crowded backfield group.
Ray spoke to GSN following the conclusion of practice and got his thoughts on the running back situation, where he stands in his quest to find a role on the team and what he hopes to improve on as the summer turns to fall.
