Riley talks spring defense, special teams

IT'S SOUNDING LIKE Mike Riley might be more involved with the Beaver defense and special teams this season. So how much 3-4 might the Beavers play this season? And what are Riley's thoughts on the OSU special teams headed into spring ball and the 2014 season?

The Beavs have some promising upperclassmen in the back end, with an experience-laden linebackers corps leading the way.

Seniors D.J. Alexander, Michael Doctor and Jabral Johnson are the strength of the defense, along with a pair of solid safeties in Ryan Murphy and Tyrequek Zimmerman. And linebacker Rommel Mageo also came in for some praise.
