Collison stays, Jefferson gone

Today is the deadline for early entry declarations, leading to a bit more news around the Pac-10.
And in a little twist, a player everyone thought was gone, Darren Collison of UCLA, is staying; while a player some thought might stay (though not me) is gone, USC’s Davon Jefferson. I’d heard a couple of times Jefferson had little interest in school and in the end, wouldn’t stay, even if it might make some sense long-term. As the story says, Jefferson is signing with an agent and is gone for good.
Collison, meanwhile, says he will undoubtedly return, giving him a chance to exorcise his Hec Ed demons. He’s played two horrible games there in UCLA losses to UW the last two seasons, including three points and eight turnovers this season.
UCLA’s Josh Shipp also announced today that he will at least explore the waters, though he’s expected to return.
Here’s a complete list of early entries via Sportsline.com.
