Michigan's youth movement from a couple of seasons ago continues to pay off now, as the Wolverines lose just one running back from last season, Michael Shaw, but return 1,000-yard rusher Fitzgerald Toussaint, third-down back Vincent Smith and almost all of their depth from a season ago.

This should be a position of strength for the Wolverines next season, aided by the extremely fast legs of senior quarterback Denard Robinson.

Spring practice could be a good chance for Michigan to build depth here for the future.
