California running back DeShawn Collins, who rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns against the USC Trojans in 2019, has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Collins, a Sacramento, Calif., native, committed to the Golden Bears in 2018 as a junior college transfer. At the time, he also had offers from the BYU Cougars, Hawaii Rainbow Warriors and the UNLV Rebels, according to Rivals.

Before transferring to California, he earned All-American honors from 2017 to 2018 at the City College of San Francisco. As a sophomore, he rushed for 923 yards and 10 touchdowns on 192 attempts in 2018 and added 28 receptions for 434 receiving yards and four touchdowns. A real utility player, he also returned kicks for the City College of San Francisco Rams.

California fans likely know Collins best as the running back who scored two touchdowns against the USC Trojans in 2019.

On 15 touches of the ball, he rushed for 103 yards, including a 34-yard-long run against USC. He also had one forced fumble and one tackle against the Trojans, when the running back got the ball back for the Golden Bears after a Devon Modster interception in the third quarter.
