Jadeveon Clowney Got Dressed Up

University of South Carolina superstar Jadeveon Clowney got dressed up in his best plain white T-shirt for a visit to the South Carolina State House this week …

Clowney, 20, was recognized by Palmetto State lawmakers for his unanimous All-American season last year – which included AT&T National Player of the Year and SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors. The Heisman Trophy candidate recorded 23.5 tackles for loss in 2012 along with 13 sacks – both school records. And if those numbers weren’t sufficiently impressive, Clowney put an exclamation point on his season with this unforgettable hit against Michigan running back Vincent Smith in the 2013 Outback Bowl.

Bottom line? Were it not for the NFL’s rule requiring three seasons to have elapsed from a player’s high school graduation date, Clowney would have been the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft. For sure …

Following his impressive 2011 campaign – in which he captured SEC Freshman of the Year honors – we discussed Clowney’s evolution and the fact he was already being compared to Lawrence Taylor, arguably the greatest defensive player in NFL history.

“Nothing against USC’s superfrosh, but we think the comparison is a bit premature,” we wrote.

Yeah … not anymore. Clowney has not only lived up to his high school hype (the Rock Hill, S.C. native was the nation’s No. 1 recruit in 2010) but he’s managed to outperform those lofty expectations.

Assuming the 6-foot-6, 270-pound junior stays healthy, his 2013 campaign could be one for the ages …

During his visit to the State House, Clowney was swarmed by politicians, photographers and autograph seekers. His appearance – which included a standing ovation from the S.C. House of Representatives – was a public relations coup for the University, which was holding a big event for legislators this week as the state’s FY 2013-14 budget process winds down.

“You would have thought the pope was up there,” one State House insider told FITS.

Haha! He dressed for the occassion. At least he showed them what he thinks of them, too bad he didn’t go a step further and tell them to leave him alone a la James Harrison.

The fact these bastards are using my money to congratulate a future millionaire, like he needs congratulations, is completely ridiculous.

I think the interpretation of this is all wrong. He is on a class field trip for Government 101 at USC. They take the students (athletes) on field trips all the time. However, there will be a quiz . . . Q1. Where did we go today?

FITS could put on a three-piece tailor-made seer-sucker, and all that would remain is the Sucker…This kid has more class in his toe-nail that the Repulsive FITS has in his whole government-check-ridin’ family…

What is refreshing: FITS’ minions used to imply that JD was way over-rated…now FITS is reduced to lamely trying to Bash the kid over his clothing….

Kinda like the lines and lines of Idiots who are left to call me names after I take FITS to school on all the ignorant crap he posts for his dull, leftwing followers….

I grew up in the Upstate, so I generally feel pretty conversant in Clemson illogic, but I am frankly at a loss to even understand what in the world you are saying considering that the website that he linked was is in fact the US News college rankings website, and not one just mentioning it (which is still “citing” the rankings, just like how I linked to an article about the Honors college rankings rather than buying the book and scanning in the relevant pages).

https://www.fitsnews.com/2012/01/20/sic-willie-accused-of-dirty-santorum-trick/

Kinda ironic for FITS to talk about how JD is dressed….

Most of us who grew up ghetto (like I did) know pursuing Thug is the result of a weak mind and leads to a lot of failure. Usually practiced by those unable to throw off the trash thrust upon them. Most Suburbanite, white-boy wannabes (see FITS) have no idea what it is…so they like to play Gangsta to releive the boredom that they are…

Yeah what a crying shame he didn’t wear suit to sit in a balcony so he could be acknowledged for 30 seconds out of his life. Who cares what he is wearing.

Where is a college kid from a less than wealthy family supposed to get the money to buy a nice suit? There are some ugly racial undertones behind this article but what do you expect from Fits.

So poor black people don’t buy nice clothes? Next you’ll say they don’t buy nice cars or spend money getting their hair did.

No one said he had to turn up in a Zegna suit, but he doesn’t have a white shirt and a tie for Easter and his momma’s birthday? How can you see race here?

The way he’s standing, it looks like he’s standing before a judge.

His attire is entirely appropriate for the venue. Besides, if he showed up in nice duds, the NCAA would investigate how he could afford them.

Reading some of the comments under this story, it’s less of a mystery to me why people who identify as conservative are so loathed. At this rate, we’ll have to rename ourselves like the liberals did.

I’m guessing the really dressed up portion is out of camera range. That would be the Cargo shorts and Nike’s.
