Tall and thin for a RB. Does he look likely to push any of the top 3 for carries, assuming Wooden is in that top 3?

I think Pollock will get some time in the season, depending on how much he progresses during spring, summer and fall camp. The hope is that he can bring some explosiveness to the position, which is what they wanted to get from Street. When healthy, Street showed flashes of doing just that. Pollock is tall and skinny but he's also really fast. He was a dang good high school running back.
Wooden is a durable back with great hands. He should play a big role. I'm thinking Lucious Stanley is heading toward a really good year. He's had a full year of experience and is not coming off a knee injury this time around. All three need to give Spencer Brown some much needed rest. Brown is durable as heck but he's also banged up after a pair of rugged seasons.

RE: Spring Practice Schedule
Pollack had a carry in the bowl game, which is more than Stanley (or anyone other running back not named Spencer Brown) had. That was the shock of that game--I am a fan of Stanley and would surely have expected him to play in that situation over someone who hadn't carried the ball all year. I suppose Pollack really impressed in the bowl practices and they gave him a shot.

Haven't seen this team, he was the only player mentioned in the last spring article. Scrimmage today a LF (closed I think) and then spring break.

But his hs hudl tape I watched last year showed him at RB, and he's probably the better HS back out of all these guys here.

I think he makes top three imho with Brown, and Stanley.
Stanley will breakout this year, I'm most impressed with him thought he was the best RB last season.

I hope we don't run Brown into the ground this year, and he shows improvement. I wouldn't mind giving certain duties to certain guys 3rd down back, redzone RB, goaline guy maybe.

This is accurate. I see a healthy rotation of Brown, Stanley, Wooden, and Pollock in no particular order with Street moving to DB. Pollocks HS videos of him at RB are impressive. Brown will be our bell cow but the others should get a lot more reps this year. What hurt last year was all of our RB were injured or were banged up at one point in the season with Brown being the least banged up which is funny to say considering how banged up Brown was.

Yeah I kinda thought about this, as I was thinking about noble just sitting at the end of the bench last year thought he should've got more carries. Then we switch QBs and had success with the pass so i guess that was to help with RB depth too.

I myself was a Noble fan and thought he should have gotten more carries. He was fast and shifty and healthy! But then again im not a coach and everything ended up working out. Still wish Noble got more carries though.

RE: Spring Practice Schedule
Noble had very quick feet. Couldnt really say that about our other backs, although Street and Stanley were fast. Too many carries for Spencer but to his credit he got it done and led us to a championship. Im a huge Clark fan but am concerned his offenses sometimes ride their lead horse too hard. I remember Jordan Howard carrying 30 plus times and puking his guts on the sideline. Spreading the carries has multiple benefits, where possible. Id like to see Stanley get a lot more carries this year to spread the load, and to prepare for 2020 when Brown is playing on Sundays.

I agree, but at times I wondered what was his obstacle ( OC or position coach). He could start tomorrow for the Iron.
