San Jose Mercury News - Vereen declares for NFL Draft
The talented Cal running back is going pro after a season of 1,167 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. Vereen joins a solid mid-round class of running backs that can also catch the ball. It's unlikely Vereen gets pick before the end of the second around at the earliest. Cal has produced the likes of Jahvid Best and Marshawn Lynch of late, but Vereen isn't the same caliber of player.
Hartford Courant - Jordan Todman turning pro
Todman, who rushed for 1,695 yards and 14 touchdowns this season will forego his senior season at Connecticut and enter the draft. Todman is undersized at 5-foot-9 and 193 pounds, but runs with a lot of power. He has 616 rushing attempts for the Huskies and may want to get into the NFL before more wear gets on his legs. Todman rushed for at least 80 yards in every game this season, topping 100 on 10 occasions.
Chase Goodbread (great name) reports that injuries could force Dont'a Hightower and Mark Barron to return to Alabama for their senior seasons.
