We already have a couple threads dedicated to reporting declarations of underclassmen, I want to keep some sort of organized catalogue of significant players who have announced their intentions to stay.

You can post rumors, but I would prefer we keep this as credible and official as possible.

So far, the only first rounder I have heard announcing he plans to return is Manti Te'o. Any others?

Any word on Xavier Rhodes? This will be the biggest WTF if he does not come back.

That is a huge surprise since everyone expected him to declare.

I saw large parts of about five Utah games (all of the USC game), and he certainly stood out. He looks like a top 100 pick; I just never heard any draft buzz about him.

Smart move by him. I think he could rise a lot next year.

Should both Alshon Jeffery & Stephon Gilmore return?

In my mind, yes. Gilmore is a third rouunder to me right now, so there should be no big hurry to get back. Jeffery, meanwhile, is a top ten talent who might fall out of the first round entirely. I think he'll be a very good pro, but his stock is cold as ice right now. His situation reminds me alot of Jonathan Baldwin's last year.

Has Warmack been confirmed? I always assumed he would but there are always surprises.

I talked to my parents about it, Warmack said. We discussed it and Im pretty much going to be here for another year. I like my teammates. I love them to death. I like the program. I think I still have a lot of stuff to do as far as developing as an offensive lineman. I want to help the team out one more year.
