Jadeveon Clowney probably scares most quarterbacks, even if they wouldn’t want to admit it. At 6-foot-6, 274 pounds, it’s easy to see why some would be scared of the South Carolina defensive lineman. Not only can he deliver bone-crushing hits, like the one he laid on Michigan’s Vincent Smith in last year’s Outback Bowl, but he can also run pretty fast for his size — 40 yards in 4.46 seconds, to be precise. Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray is not impressed, however. Clowney made headlines during SEC Media Days on Tuesday when he rattled off a list of signal callers in the SEC who he thinks are “scared” of him. Murray was one of them, along with Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd and former Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson. On Thursday, Murray had a chance to fire back. Unfortunately, however, for those looking for him to add fuel to the fire of the Georgia-South Carolina rivalry, he did so with the utmost respect. “You know, I think the word fear was misused for respect. [I] definitely have a lot of respect for him,” Murray said. “He’s one of if not the best player in the country. Unbelievable player. Very talented player. A guy that you really do have to game-plan for and set a plan for him.” But is he scared? “I’m definitely not scared. But definitely respect greatly what he’s able to do on the field.” Ho-hum. Guess we’ll have to wait until Sept. 7, when Georgia opens SEC play at home against the Gamecocks, for Murray to back his words up.
