Clemson Fans Mock Jadeveon Clowney
University of South Carolina superstar defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was labeled illiterate by a fan attending ESPN’s College Gameday festivities in Clemson, S.C. on Saturday.
“Clowney Can’t Read This Sign,” a placard held by a fan read.
Real classy, Clemson fans … real classy.
It’s understandable why Tigertown is hostile toward the 6-foot-6, 274-pound unanimous All-American. Remember, Clowney recorded 4.5 quarterback sacks during USC’s 27-17 victory over Clemson a year ago in Death Valley – helping seal the Gamecocks’ fourth consecutive win over their in-state rivals.
And while Clowney had an underwhelming 2013 debut on Thursday night against North Carolina – he remains a frontrunner for the Heisman Trophy award and is arguably the most disruptive player college football has seen since Lawrence Taylor.
Not the sort of guy you want to upset, in other words …
There was some initial concern whether Clowney – the No.1 high school recruit in America two years ago – would be academically eligible to compete at South Carolina, however he made his grades and has had no academic issues since he enrolled at USC in 2011.
