Football: Vereen leaving Cal

Cal running back Shane Vereen has decided to leave for the NFL Draft, according to this report. I am working on our desk tonight so I’m not sure how much more I’ll have tonight on this story, but certainly this doesn’t come as a surprise.

    I wish Shane well. I thnk he’s a great young man. I just hope he’s picked high enough to warrant leaving college early.
    Good luck to him.
    Would have loved to have seen him in blue and gold for his senior year but guess that’s not to be.

    Shane, you gave us all during your 3 & a half years at Cal. Thank you very much, and you will be missed. What a classy guy!
    Best of luck in April and beyond!

    A HUGE THANK YOU TO SHANE. Get that money, show the world what you got.

    Very special thanks for last year’s Big Game. I’ll always remember that.

    Vereen has already graduated, so he’s held up his end academically. Best wishes to him at the next level of competition.
