In May, Shane Callahan decided to leave Auburn in order to be closer to his home in Colorado.
Three months later, he’s successfully achieved that goal.
According to the Boulder Daily Camera, Callahan (pictured, left) has transferred into the Colorado football program. The native of the state is seeking a waiver that would allow him to play immediately in 2014.
Until then, he’s simply practicing with his new teammates, with his new head coach holding out hope that he’ll be cleared and eligible to play right away..
“We’re going to practice him as he learns everything, just practice him like he’s getting ready to play,” Mike MacIntyre said. “Right now, he’s having to learn everything, so he’s a little bit behind, but hopefully they’ll clear him and he’ll be ready to play. We’ll look forward for the next two or three weeks, until we find out, like he’s getting ready to play.”
Callahan was a four-star member of AU’s 2012 recruiting class, rated as the No. 22 offensive tackle in the country. He took a redshirt as a true freshman, then played in two games during the Tigers’ run to the BCS title game last year.
