RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina State has settled on a surprise choice to start at running back.
One-time defensive back Dean Haynes will start at tailback when the Wolfpack open Saturday night against Western Carolina. The redshirt freshman will be backed up by freshman Mustafa Greene.
Junior Curtis Underwood was listed as the starter after spring practice with sophomore James Washington as his backup. On that depth chart, Haynes was listed as a backup at free safety.
