Jadeveon Clowney South Carolina Gamecocks Defensive End AlabamaSpartanburg, SC — Super Recruit (Defensive End) Jadeveon Clowney made a case to the football world why he is rated the Number 1 high school football recruit (by most recruiting services) in the nation at the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas. Clowney led the South Carolina team to a 42-10 win over the North Carolina team. Clowney’s stats for the game were 5 tackles (all for loss), 3 sacks, 2 quarterback hurries. Clowney got pressure on the QB all day, and even managed to draw 5 holding calls. Clowney was named the South’s Defensive Star for his efforts on the day. However, days like this are nothing new, as Clowney has been harassing QB’s all throughout his high school career. Clowney’s high school— South Pointe— played on “ESPN Rise High School Football Kickoff” this year, and it was clear that he was a man among boys watching that game.

So why is Jadeveon Clowney so important? Because at 6’6”, 250 (and growing) this guy will make any D-Line threatening the minute he gets to campus, and he has 3 SEC teams in his short list of 5 schools. LSU, Alabama, and South Carolina are the three SEC teams still being considered. However, most believe the South Pointe, South Carolina, native has really had it narrowed down to Alabama and South Carolina for quite a few months now.

Of course, Clowney being from South Carolina gives the Gamecocks a huge advantage in keeping him in-state, but don’t count out Alabama just yet. Nick Saban is pulling out all the stops to get Clowney, and guess who the guest speaker for the Shrine Bowl this year was? None other than Saban himself. Of course, after Spurrier danced with Marcus Lattimore’s Mom, theres no telling what he might do to get this kid. Clowney could come in and play for either team immediately. Neither Alabama nor South Carolina had a dominating pass rush, so both teams could use him right away to sure up the pass rush. South Carolina’s defensive scheme seems to fit a Speed Rush guy a little better than Bama’s 3-4, but there is no doubt that the Tide will have a way to use him if he is there.

Things could change, but as of right now it looks like Clowney will be terrorizing offenses in the SEC next year. However, if your team doesn’t get Clowney, you won’t have to worry too long. Clowney will play three years and then declare for the draft, because he looks NFL ready right now. Guys like Clowney make the SEC the conference that it is, and it will only make Saturdays Down South that much better to see Clowney playing in the SEC.

    Not so fast my friend! There is obviously a lot of SEC homerism in this article so this will probably make you sick, but you can probably go ahead and scratch Bama off the short list. They are always in the running since they have deep pockets, but they want him as a jack LB and he wants his hand on the ground and doesn’t want to be apart of their D. The darkhorse to lookout for here is FSU. He will be visiting them soon and they have put together a great group of coaches who are great recruiters and are building something special down there. He would fit perfectly into their defensive scheme and he has to take notice of them leading the NCAA in sacks this year and they will continue to be on the rise for years to come. He would be foolish not to give them a serious look. If he would like playing for Saban, he would love playing for Fisher as he was a Saban scholar yet is much more personable with his players. FSU will be competing for championships at the highest level very soon and USCe will as usual not be competing for much of anything. They were the benefit of a pathetic east division this year. If he has NFL aspirations, he should give serious consideration to the Noles, they are bringing in a top class as wellwith possibly the best DB, LB and TE in the nation and best WR, RB’s and QB in the state. He will be surrounded by top talent which will make him even better.

    Don’t sleep on the Noles, this bowl game may be very important in his decision, but either way it would be foolish not to give them serious consideration.
