Cal defensive end Ted Agu died Friday morning at a hospital after collapsing during a conditioning run, the Contra Costa Times reported.

The school confirmed Agu died after being taken to a hospital but provided no details surrounding the incident.

Agu, a 6-1, 240-pound, fifth-year senior, was 21 years old. He played in seven games in 2013 and recorded six tackles.

"This is a very difficult time for our football family, said head coach Sonny Dykes in a statement. "Ted was a remarkable young man and a member of this family who was highly respected and loved by his teammates and coaching staff. He had an incredible passion for life and will be deeply missed."

---Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston plans to play college football for two more seasons, according to the Associated Press.

Winston, a redshirt freshman, will be eligible to enter the NFL draft in 2015. However, coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday he believes the reigning Heisman Trophy winner will be a Seminole for two more years.

He also plays baseball for the Seminoles.

---Running back prospect D.J. Law, who submitted signed national letters of intent to Utah and Mississippi, was released from his obligation to Ole Miss, according to multiple reports.

Mississippi coach Hugh Freeze said the school's compliance department is "completely certain no wrongdoing occurred by our coaching or compliance staff" and that it is cooperating with the national letter of intent office.

Freeze said the school is releasing Law from his commitment after speaking with him and his family.

Law publicly announced Wednesday that he was planning to attend Utah. Both schools received signed letters of intent from him, however.
