STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Rennie Childs could take hold of Oklahoma State’s running back job this spring.

The junior from Houston is the team’s top returning rusher now that Desmond Roland’s eligibility is up and Tyreek Hill has been kicked off the team. With highly touted signees Chris Carson and Jeff Carr not on campus yet, Childs has the opportunity to get ahead of the pack. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy discussed the situation with Childs before spring practice began for the Cowboys on Monday.

Childs rushed for 294 yards last season, including a season-high 70 against Texas Tech. Gundy said the 5-foot-10, 205-pounder has gotten faster, and appears ready to take on the added responsibility.
