COLUMBIA (WACH)- One of the most highly touted football players in South Carolina Gamecocks history is leaving Columbia on a positive note. Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who many believe is the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, wrote the following that was delivered through his agent Bus Cook:
"To all of my Family at the University of South Carolina, Fans, Coaches, Media, and above all my Teammates,
I want to thank all of you for the love and support that you have shown me in my years at the University of South Carolina. I have been blessed to have attended the University of South Carolina, and I will forever be a Gamecock. It is hard to believe that the years have gone by so fast and my time here has come to an end, but I will always carry you with me in the NFL and wherever I go in life. I am extremely excited about the opportunity to play in the NFL. This dream would not have been possible without each and every one of you, and you will always be in my heart.
Thank You, Jadeveon Clowney #7"
