USC RB Ronald Jones II needs Texas burgers, BBQ to stay healthy

Wednesday September 9th, 2015

Ronald Jones II is having some trouble adjusting to life in Southern California after growing up in Texas. The freshman USC running back was feeling anemic during his first training camp with the Trojans, and he blames the change in diet, according to Reign of Troy.

“I was just feeling a little dizzy and dazed for a couple of days, I don’t know what exactly was going on. I guess I was just a little homesick with the food, like Whataburger and stuff like that.”

Jones must have eventually adapted to the green juice-filled diet of his new home as he had a strong showing for USC in the team’s opener against Arkansas State, with a 44-yard touchdown run included in his 86 rushing yards on six carries in the 55–6 victory.

The freshman will just have to make due with In-N-Out Burger for the rest of the season, which seems like a pretty great problem to have.
