Jadeveon Clowney - Defensive Line
TigerNet: (5.00)

Height: 6-6   Weight: 240   Hometown: Rock Hill, SC (South Pointe HS)   Class: 2011

ESPN breaks down the 3 schools that are in contention for Clowney's services. They compare them in terms of production, playing time, and draft history.

According to the ESPN article:

South Carolina’s defensive line will have an opening as three-year starting defensive end Cliff Matthews is graduating.

Alabama is losing defensive lineman Marcell Dareus to the draft, but they already signed two of the top defensive end recruits in the nation in Xzavier Dickson (No. 22 in ESPNU 150) and Jeoffrey Pagan (No. 53 in ESPNU 150).

Clemson is losing one of its two starting defensive ends as Da’Quan Bowers is heading to the draft. Andre Branch will likely be a senior starter in 2010, but the other defensive end spot is wide open.


"South Carolina has never had a defensive end drafted in the first round and has only had one DE drafted in the first three rounds since 1967.

Alabama has not had a defensive end drafted in the first round since 1993.

Clemson has had three defensive ends drafted in the first round. Most recently, Gaines Adams was taken fourth overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 2007 draft, and Bowers is the No. 1 pick in Todd McShay’s Mock Draft 3.0 and the No. 2 player on Mel Kiper’s Big Board."
