In Anthony Switzer, Utah State had its replacement for Justin Rice, and that is saying something.
Rice was a standout for the Aggies last season, as he was at every stop during his college career. He was the type of player that only comes around every so often, a coach on the field who effectively directs the entire defense and who sometimes then goes rogue only to make the right play time and again.
And the Aggies had found his replacement in Switzer, an Arkansas State transfer.
Switzer may not be Rice, but Utah State couldn’t have asked for a better player. Of all the standouts during spring camp, Switzer was the highlight.
“Switz was playing lights out,” Utah State defensive coordinator Ephraim Banda said. “He is big time.”
Utah State lost some significant players from last season. Can the Aggies replace them?
