04/19/2012 - Connecticut running back D.J. Shoemate, the senior transfer from USC, must end his career due to lingering shoulder injuries. Head coach Paul Pasqualoni acknowledged the possibility of Shoemate missing the 2012 season when the running back underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder last week. Shoemate talked to Desmond Conner of The Hartford Courant about the decision on Tuesday. "I'm pretty easy about it and I've come to the realization," Shoemate told the Courant. "I've known for a couple of weeks now - maybe a month - that my college career as a football player would come to an end. I have a lot of peace in knowing that I will be getting my degree this spring and walking in the ceremony in May." Shoemate, a Carona, Calif. native and high school teammate of current Huskies quarterback Johnny McEntee, started at USC as a fullback and wide receiver. After limited playing time and NCAA sanctions, Shoemate decided to transfer to Connecticut in 2010. Then-coach Randy Edsall gave him a chance at running back early in 2010, but that position was dominated by Jordan Todman. A shoulder injury early on Sept. 16 ended his 2011 season early, using his medical redshirt to return for another year. "The shoulder actually popped out in the Iowa State game [Sept. 16]," Shoemate said. "I separated and dislocated my shoulder on the play before Scotty [McCummings] scored on the goal line. I remember my shoulder was actually out of the socket when I was going through a play-fake from Scotty." - Chip Patterson, CBS Sports
