You may not follow the National Signing Day hype in college football, and that’s fine, but you’ve got to see this video. This is the highlight reel of South Carolina high school senior Jadeveon Clowney, and he’s so good that people are asking not whether his was the best in his class, but in any class ever. And when a 6-foot-6 dude plays defensive end, defensive tackle AND RUNNING BACK, it’s difficult to not lose control of one’s bowels if he’s still considering enrollment at one’s favorite school next fall.
And Clowney’s play has done quite a bit of talking during the last two years. As a junior, the rush end had 144 tackles and 23 sacks. He followed that with 162 tackles and 29.5 sacks during his senior campaign and easily emerged as the nation’s top prospect. Not only the top prospect of 2011, but one of the top prospects in years.
Clowney has narrowed his list to six schools. He has already taken an official visit to South Carolina and Alabama, and will take his official visit to Florida State this weekend. Clemson will get an official visit on the weekend of Jan. 28 and then either North Carolina or LSU will get his final official visit on the weekend of Feb. 4 or Feb. 11 before a final decision is made.
Technically, National Signing Day is not the only day where high schools can sign letters of intent, but it is the first day where they may do so, and it looks clear that Clowney will take his sweet-assed time after February 2 to make up his mind. If only his decision-making process was as fast as he was…
