He's my favorite safety but if he comes to Dallas in a RGIII jersey, there's a-gonna be problems.
Here's his quote about the incident:
"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." - Tony Jefferson
He kept flipping back and forth between USC and UCLA. All the while he was being recruited by Mike Stoops when he was HC at Arizona and really liked him, but he didn't want to play for Arizona. But, once Stoops was fired and went to Oklahoma, he immediately decided to commit there.
