COLUMBIA, S.C. Following his team's 35-25 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday night, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney announced he would likely have a surgical procedure on his sore right foot (bone spurs) after the season. "I'm going to get it cleaned up" after the Gamecocks' bowl game, said Clowney, while admitting that he's in "a lot" of pain. Against the Commodores, Clowney racked up one sack and one forced fumble. Clowney would most likely be a top-five pick in next April's NFL draft, if he chose to forgo his senior season with the Gamecocks. In fact, at 6-foot-6 and a chiseled 274 pounds, Clowney could very well join Penn State's Courtney Brown (2000) and North Carolina State's Mario Williams (2006) as this century's only defensive ends drafted at No. 1 overall.
