South Carolina All-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has taken out an insurance policy through the NCAA worth $5 million, Darryl Slater of the Charleston Post-Courier reported on Thursday.

It's the maximum allowable policy under the current program, with a reported cost of about $30,000 paid by family members.

Clowney is projected to be the first overall pick in the 2014 draft. The NCAA's insurance policy was started in 1990 for college football players projected to be selected early in the NFL draft. Heisman winner Johnny Manziel is also reportedly looking into taking part in the program.

This move should put to rest any lingering doubts that Clowney might sit out this season to avoid injury, a notion that has been bandied about of late.
