2011 Recruiting Class Finalized, Clowney Going Elsewhere.


Jadeveon ClowneyJadaveon Clowney had Alabama & South Carolina as his final two schools with an announcement to be made on February 14th. Alabama fans were giddy in thinking that the #1 prospect was possibly going to pick the Tide, however Clowney is now fading in his choice of Alabama. The #1 reason is "proximity."

According to a statement by Clowney's high school coach at South Pointe to the The Post & Courier of Charleston, SC, he confirmed that Alabama is not as strong with Clowney at this point. "It's not because of Alabama's legacy or anything like that," Carroll said. "It's the proximity thing. He's just not sure he wants to make that long ride." http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2011/feb/06/alabama-fading-for-clowney/

I had a feeling about this recruit when I seen in a video that his mother did not want him to go too far off. That usually is a bad sign for a recruit so far away, but you can't get them all.

Word is that he is now considering Clemson. If he picks Dabo Sweeney's (Alabama alumni) Clemson Tigers, their recruiting class will be very strong this year with the pick up of several 5 star recruits including the likes of Steward, who was surprisingly pulled away from the Seminoles on signing day.

Well, there you have it... most likely unless Coach Nick Saban has another rabbit to pull out of his hat for Jadaveon, then you can pretty much say that Cyrus Kouandjio was the final "cherry on top" of this year's recruiting class.

Clowney is staying in the Palmetto state close to mama's cooking... We would LOOOOOOOVE to have him but do you really blame him for staying? He will only be there 3 years and he will be NFL bound most likely. I'm just glad we have Cyrus to block him! 🙂
