South Pointe DE Jadeveon Clowney is regarded by most of the national recruiting services as the top overall recruit in the nation. He can add another impressive high school accomplishment to his resume as Clowney won the 2010 Mr. Football for the state of South Carolina. He received the award Friday night at Myrtle Beach during the North-South Awards Banquet.

The other Mr. Football finalists were QB Justin Worley of Northwestern, QB Everett Golson of Myrtle Beach, OL Brandon Shell of Goose Creek, RB De’Angelo Henderson of Summerville, LB Quinn Backus of Greenwood, WR Charone Peake of Dorman, and QB Bo Patterson of James Island.

For the season, Clowney had 162 tackles, 29.5 sacks, 29 tackles for loss, 11 caused fumbles, 6 fumble recoveries, 43 quarterback pressures and five defensive touchdowns this season. On offense, he had 20 carries for 274 yards and nine touchdowns.

Clowney’s team South Pointe won 12 straight games until they lost to Myrtle Beach in last week’s championship game.

Clowney will take official visits to FSU on January 7th, Alabama on the 14th, and Clemson on January 21st. He has already taken a visit to South Carolina. Clowney has said that his relationship with Clemson recruiter Chris Rumph led to his decision to set the Clemson visit.
