LOS ANGELES (AP) — Southern California cornerback Josh Shaw has admitted to lying to school officials about how he sprained his ankles last weekend, retracting his story about jumping off a balcony to save his drowning nephew.

Shaw has been suspended indefinitely from all of the Trojans' team activities, the school announced in a statement Wednesday.

The school didn't explain how Shaw actually was injured in its statement, but USC officials say they regret posting a story lauding Shaw's tale on their website Monday.

USC coach Steve Sarkisian says the Trojans are "extremely disappointed in Josh." Shaw is a fifth-year senior, a team captain and a key starter in USC's defensive secondary.

The school notes Shaw has retained legal counsel.
