Interesting article by Thayer Evans’ of Fox Sports regarding the recruitment of Jadeveon Clowney.

Everyone knows by now that the top overall prospect in the country chose South Carolina over Clemson and Alabama on Valentines Day. What you may not know is that not everyone is too fond of Nick Saban, including Jadeveon Clowney.

Jadeveon Clowney says Nick Saban can talk…a lot.

“Nick Saban’s going to take over and talk,” Clowney told Evans. “He talked the whole time he was there. I was dozing off. He can talk. A lot. He talked for a whole straight hour.”

I will even put some money down that Saban’s hand gestures were going out of control during that in-home visit. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about after watching the BCS National Championship game.

Clowney also went on to say this about Nick Saban:

“I don’t see no big deal like everybody else. They’d say, ‘He’s the king of all of football.’ The guy ain’t nothing but 5-5. He’s a short guy. Everybody’s going crazy on Nick Saban.”

So, there you have it. Nick Saban “ain’t nothing but 5-5”. Too bad the Gamecocks don’t play the Crimson Tide next year. That would be fun.
