Wildcats RB Carey to Turn Pro 1/13/14
UNDATED - Arizona All-America running back Ka'Deem Carey will forgo his final season of college eligibility and enter the NFL draft. The hard-hitting running back led the nation in rushing in 2012. Last season, he gained 1,885 yards, averaging 5.4 yards per carry.
Carey leaves as the university's all-time leading rusher. He owns or shares 26 Arizona single-game, season and career records.
Carey gained at least 100 yards in each of his final 16 games.
- Others leaving college early to turn pro include LSU leading rusher Jeremy Hill. Hill played two seasons at LSU and was the Tigers' leading rusher each season. He rushed for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. He called his decision to leave school very difficult.
- Also joining the draft will be Stanford All-American guard David Yankey. He's giving up his final year of eligibility after helping the Cardinal establish one of the top offensive lines in the country.
