Story Topics

BERKELEY, CALIF. (AP) - California running back Shane Vereen says he will skip his senior season to enter the NFL draft.

Vereen announced his decision Saturday, saying the time was right for him to try the NFL. Vereen earned his degree in December but still had one year of eligibility remaining because he redshirted his freshman year.

In three seasons with the Golden Bears, Vereen ran for 2,834 yards and scored 35 touchdowns. He finishes his career in the top 10 in rushing touchdowns, rushing yards, all-purpose yards and scoring.

He ran for 1,167 yards and three touchdowns this season. He also caught 22 passes for 209 yards and three scores.

Cal finished 5-7 and did not make a bowl game.
