Jadeveon Clowney Tops Preseason Heisman List

University of South Carolina superstar Jadeveon Clowney is ranked No. 1 on ESPN.com’s 2013 Heisman Watch list.

The 6-foot-6, 274-pound defensive end – who is attempting to become the first defensive player since Charles Woodson in 1997 to win the award – was ranked ahead of Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel (the 2012 award winner) and Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron.

“Clowney is the most disruptive player in college football,” the website noted.

Duh …

Clowney, 20, finished sixth in the Heisman voting a year ago after recording 23.5 tackles for losses and 13 sacks (both school records) as a sophomore.

Earlier this year we wrote about Las Vegas odds makers dissing his chances, giving him 12-1 odds … well behind Manziel, Miller, Southern Cal wide receiver Marqise Lee and Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

“What a joke,” we wrote at the time. “Clowney is the best college football player in America. Period. Paragraph. End of story.”

Finding that out the hard way right now? South Carolina’s offensive linemen, who have been struggling to contain Clowney in practice.

“We act like we’re afraid to block him,” USC head coach Steve Spurrier said. “Hopefully he’s that good.”

South Carolina opens its 2013 season next Thursday at home against the University of North Carolina. Kickoff is at 6:00 p.m. EDT, with ESPN televising the game nationally.

Hopefully Clowney will be able to stay out of trouble off the field. He may be headed down a slippery slope with some of the company he keeps. There is always someone a little badder and /or better.

What an idiot you are. There is not one once of proof nor truth to your claim that he runs with bad company. People like you that just make up shit to post here are just flat out pathetic and jealous of those you talk about. I feel sorry for you.
