Jadeveon Clowney has a great deal of hype surrounding him this season, and rightfully so. With 21 sacks in 25 career games just during his freshman and sophomore seasons, South Carolina’s Clowney, is making clear why ESPN referred to him as the boogeyman.
The possibilities for Jadevon Clowney are not only endless, but also remarkable. It’s easy to forget that this explosive defensive end is only entering his junior season with the Gamecocks, and is not only a Heisman Trophy candidate, but also a potential number one pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Clowney’s proven himself over the course of the last two seasons and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see one, if not both of these accolades land in his favor.
With much left gain, where does one of South Carolina’s most disruptive Gamecock’s go from here? Seemingly, nowhere but up. Young collegiate athletes are looking to mimic and learn from Clowney, which could add to the hype that’s being built around him. If Jadevon Clowney is able to overcome his own hype and keep a steady head on his shoulders, this could make out to be one of the best boogeymen of all time.
