USC football lost support staffer Trey Johnson to his alma mater while Ronald Jones II was a big winner, Alijah Vera-Tucker and Amon-Ra St. Brown were mocked and Su'a Cravens lost some jerseys.

It's time for the latest USC football updates from Monday, Feb. 8...

USC football's support staff gets poached

What goes around comes around. Just after the Trojans managed to grab a key recruiter from Texas, USC's director of scouting is now on his way to Tennessee.

Trey Johnson served as USC's director of scouting and recruiting strategy. It would seem the Trojans have already partly replaced him with Cal's Marshall Cherrington, who is now USC's director of recruiting strategy.

A new director of scouting will need to be identified. Fortunately the Trojans have a recent track record of finding top-quality recruiters.

Ronald Jones II is a champ

Former USC running back Ronald Jones II got some one-on-one time with the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday night after his Buccaneers triumphed over the Chiefs.

Jones had 61 yards on 12 carries for Tampa Bay with an average of 5.1 yards per touch. Unfortunately, he came millimeters short of a Super Bowl touchdown.

Once the final whistle blew, the only thing on his mind was a ring.

Twelve hours later, he woke up feeling what's probably the greatest feeling in the world.

Thanks to RoJo's win, the Trojans have added to their NCAA-best Super Bowl title-winning tally.

To make the ending even happier, ex-USC running backs coach Todd McNair is also getting a ring.

Alijah Vera-Tucker and Amon-Ra St Brown feature in new mock draft

The Super Bow is now over, which means we can all turn our focus fully towards the NFL Draft.

The latest mock draft from Chad Reuter for NFL.com has Alijah Vera-Tucker being pegged as the No. 24 overall pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In the third round, Reuter projects wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown to the Chiefs. Wouldn't that be fun for the Trojan star to catch passes from Patrick Mahomes?

The player missing from all of this is Jay Tufele. If he doesn't go in the first three rounds, it would be pretty disappointing.

Su'a Cravens shares a jersey horror story

Think about the most valuable thing you've ever had stolen. Now imagine they're one-of-a-kind game-worn jerseys.

Former USC safety Su'a Cravens shared a list of all the jersey's he lost when someone stole a box during a move.

The Reggie Bush jersey alone is something to cry over, even if it was from his very forgettable season with the Bills.
