Colorado State football coach Jim McElwain announced after Wednesday’s practice that Lee Clubb had left the team to pursue baseball, somewhere down in Texas, the coach believed.
This is probably a good move for Clubb, who wasn’t getting far in his football career with the Rams. He led the team with nine kickoff returns, but two of his teammates have a better average. One of them, true freshman Jasen Oden, is seeing more time. And at Clubb’s primary position, wide receiver, he hasn’t had a catch in five games. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound sophomore had just nine catches for 65 yards as a true freshman in 2011.
Clubb was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 27th round out of high school, and at the time, told his local paper he was planning on going the route of baseball. From the article, the fact he ended up at CSU would leave one to believe the Royals didn’t meet his signing demands.
