Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker realizes it’s going to be tough to fill the spot left by Kenneth Walker III in the upcoming Peach Bowl, but he’s confident the team can do it.
“It’s hard to replace a guy like Ken,” Tucker said during a press conference. “You really can’t do that. But we have other players obviously on our roster at that position that are going to be next man up, and they’re going to step up and get the job done and we have a plan for that. And I feel really good about our run game.”
Walker is declaring for the NFL draft. The Peach Bowl will see Michigan State going up against No. 12 Pittsburgh in Atlanta.
