McKinney (Texas) four-star running back Ronald Jones has been committed to Oklahoma State since last spring, but with his senior season finally concluding, the Under Armour All-American is weighing his options further.
Saturday, after rushing for 188-yards and two scores in a season where
he rushed for more than 2,000 yards, Jones recovered from a 64-40
loss to John Tyler in the 5A state playoffs with a trip to sunny
“I’ve always liked USC,” said Jones. “Ever since watching Reggie Bush
play on TV, USC has been one of my favorite schools.”
Jones landed at LAX with his mother Saturday morning and head straight
to the Trojans’ practice facility where USC was preparing for a first
time Holiday Bowl match up with Nebraska.
But the practice facilities weren’t what impressed Jones about USC.
“The highlight was going to the Coliseum, such a historic venue,” said
Jones. “I’ve played there a millions times on NCAA Football (video
game), so to finally see it in person was amazing.”
From there, Jones took tours of the academics facilities and ate dinner
with his host, sophomore running back Justin Davis. He also spent time
with his cousin and aunt, who made the visit to campus with him.
Overall, Jones visit to Los Angeles may have given USC a say in his
ultimate decision on signing day going forward.
“It definitely helped USC,” said Jones. “I will still take a couple of
more visits though. I have Notre Dame next week, same time.”
And while Jones will continue to consider USC and trip to South Bend
next weekend, he remains a name embedded on the Cowboy commitment list.
“I’m still committed (to Oklahoma State),” said Jones. “I’m just trying
to make an educated decision and I had to come see USC.”
