UM football starter decides not to pursue another college season, leaves for pros
Starting linebacker Ramon Buchanan has informed UM that he will not seek a sixth year medical redshirt and has decided to pursue an NFL career.
Buchanan suffered a season-ending knee injury in the second game of the season. Because he missed most of the 2011 season with an injury to the same knee, there had been hope that UM would grant him a sixth season.
But Buchanan has decided to move on, which UM confirmed.
UM still feels like it's in good shape at linebacker, with Denzel Perryman, Eddie Johnson and several others.
Check back in a few hours for a lot more UM news, plus Dolphins and Heat, in the Wednesday buzz column.

U beat me to the punch Sam.
Well I thought he wasn't coming back anyway, I assumed he's done and wants to make some money, I wish him good luck on the next level.
good luck cook now maybe that means powell is a bigger need
Well funny how things work out & that # 20 I have said all along will be hit-AG will take 20 in this class but with that decision from Cookie-That sure enough opens the door now for Luke Arciniega-6'3-245 who is a flat out balla &believe me CANES-He can handle it here & will even shine. This kid is the real deal-I am excited about this kid & if he winds up here, man we can look forward to some of the hardest hitting we have seen from our D in a long time. This kid flat brings it !!!
CANE 4 LIFE & BEYOND !! I BLEED ORANGE & LIVE GREEN !!!!
Good luck Ramon! Hope he stays healthy!!
most knew he wasnt coming back...I didnt count him as part of the 68 current used schollies
lol. its yours...you can have it fellow CaneHead.
I'm thinking that this one goes to LB Rueben Foster. Al has has already personally gone to see him.
so has half the SEC...doesnt mean anything
we would be close enough to home for him and we'd let him start if he is smart he'd consider us but damn is georgia a tough one
I'd gladly take the kid w/ the weird name from university school
haha Skai Moore, barring a Jawand Blue situtation I dont see him coming
Id take Quinten Powell as the 3rd LB option...hes a great pass rusher
powell, matthew thomas, chick, porter and mccord not bad at all sir on 3rd down
You had me thinking Eddie Johnson was gone.
I love Cookie & all but I can handle that... Lol. OP had my heart dropping over here. Best of luck to RB. One love Cane.
Golden is better then Jimbo... I feared it was true. He is going to hoist a crystal ball there - fsufsu
He is not going to get drafted. Plain and simple. He has not done enough in his college career to warrant being drafted. Good luck to him anyways. If he does get drafted, I hope he reps the _ all the way.

doesnt matter...it was definitely his time to move on..last 2 years have been hell for him here..
Same feeling here
...........Even sponge knows its about the U
First of all, Best of luck Cookie! Rough couple years here but once a cane, always a cane!
2nd, Happy to have the LB slot open up.
Luke A., Skai Moore, George Williams, would be great adds.. or even Yannick that just decommited from UMD has good size and speed. Powell reminds me of Grace somewhat but he also may be a good fit.
Of course I'd love to have Trey Johnson or Reuben too, but being realistic haha.
News flash...if Eddie doesn't stop smoking weed like he live in Colorado, he gone too!
