The wait is almost over. The Jadeveon Clowney announcement is now only four days away, and with time drawing short, South Pointe High School and his hometown of Rock Hill have released the specifics of the nation's No. 1 recruit's big moment :
  • A press conference has been set for 10:15 a.m. EST Monday in the South Pointe auditorium
  • The conference will not be open to the public
  • Clowney will make his choice between (presumably) South Carolina and Clemson public and answer questions from the media before returning to class, where we're sure he and his classmates will enjoy a normal day of learning
  • ESPN will provide live coverage as well as local outlets including the Rock Hill Herald
  • SPHS's athletic director and Clowney's parents will also both make public statements.
With any luck, none of these details will change between now and then. It is just four days. But when it comes to Clowney's recruitment, four days is long enough for almost anything to happen.

yep....had to get a jab at sc! lol....what about clemson...i said the same for them....the truth is sc is a middle of the road sec team...deal with it....dont even think because u won the WEAK sec east (this year it WAS weak...not normally) that sc would win the big 10.  i believe osu wouldve won the east this year, but at best 3rd in the west. im not a homer that doesnt see the TRUTH. i wasnt really taking a shot at either school....more so that this is prob going to be this kids biggest national moment....OSU got a kid that did the same thing (pryor)....and i think most people would say he has been a disappointment from all the hype he had coming out of hs.

let me just say this....i LOVE college football!! my team is tOSU, but i would watch just about any game, dont care if its b10,sec,acc,etc....


Go Bucks!!

Gipper - Hard to believe you as a ND fan are calling out other schools for not being any good.  When was the last time ND was the slightest bit relevent on the college football scene? 

I thought the same thing! Which brings me to a question- Which teams do you like to see down the most? I think the CFB gods have been good to me, in the fact that ND Michigan and UGA are down(right now). It has been nice and quiet ESPECIALLY UGA fans. Now if we can just have the same happen to LSU....

South Carolina may be middle of the road in the SEC, but how many times has OSU beat them? hmmmm..  yep ZERO!  Maybe South Carolina would win more championshiips in the Big Ten!

I know you are going to say "We beat an SEC team this year", but how often does that happen.  


Let's just agree that OSU ended a 21 year drought.  Somehow, I doubt it will be that long before OSU tastes victory over an SEC team again.

By the way Fla, Tenn, GA won't be down long so don't get used to it.

I guess Ohio State fans have to get their jabs in somewhere and South Carolina is a good target.  I know you are going to say "We beat an SEC team this year", but how often does that happen.  Tongue out

The funny thing is, this may be the most coverage he get nationally! SC & Clemson are middle of the road in their respective conferences....their time in the national spotlight is when they are taking on the big dogs (Ala,Lsu,fla,vt,fsu,miami,etc), in which most of the hype will be on the bigger name school. i know im going to hear it from sc fans..."we made it to sec champ game!"....how often does that happen? once so far! (by the way, fla,tenn,ga wont be down long so dont get used to it!

All I know is that Clowney is a good name for this guy as his recruiting process has become nothing short of a circus. I thing way too much attention is paid to these recruits many of whom will be busts at the college level anyway.
