LSU's string of juniors announcing their early departures for the NFL draft was interrupted briefly when safety Craig Loston announced that he would return for his senior season.

The Advocate reports (http://bit.ly/10blE7c) running back Michael Ford decided Monday that he would forgo his senior season, bringing the number of Tigers declaring early to 10.

That number includes former All-America cornerback Tyrann Mathieu, who was kicked off the team in August, and punter Brad Wing, who was suspended for LSU's Chick-fil-A bowl game last month.

The other early entrants are linebacker Kevin Minter, safety Eric Reid, cornerback Tharold Simon, defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery, defensive tackle Bennie Logan and running back Spencer Ware.
