Valencia Grad Shane Vereen To Enter NFL Draft
Valencia High graduate and California running back Shane Vereen has decided to forego his senior football season and enter the 2011 NFL Draft.
Vereen was an all-Pac-10 selection gaining 1,167 rushing yards and scoring 13 touchdowns in his junior season. Vereen is among Cal leaders in a number of categories. He is tied for third with 29 rushing touchdowns, tied for fourth in total touchdowns with 35 and fifth in all-purpose yards with 4,069.
Vereen said one of the reasons he wants to enter the NFL Draft and skip his senior season is because he graduated early with a degree in media sciences.
