Things have come full circle in the recruitment of Tony Jefferson (Chula Vista, Calif./Eastlake). Jefferson was a silent commitment to USC last spring, but after going their separate ways, the Trojans are now very much back in the mix.

After visiting the Trojans this past weekend, UCLA is now out of the running and two schools -- USC and Oklahoma -- remain for the talented athlete.

"The UCLA players really disrespected me before the game," Jefferson said. "When they saw me, they were all cussing at me, telling me to never come around Westwood again and things like that. These were guys that I had hung out with before and it was a lot of the team. I guess I kind of see it since I was committed there and was wearing USC gear before their big game, but I still didn't appreciate it.
