We may only be 17 hours into 2013, but I seriously doubt you will see a more dominant defensive play all year (or maybe all decade) than the absolute trucking by South Carolina SOPHOMORE Jadeveon Clowney of Michigan running back Vincent Smith this afternoon from the Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa. Words cannot do this hit justice, but please remember that Clowney is NINETEEN years old and listed at 6’6″, 256 pounds and the player he destroyed is a mere pedestrian 5’6″, 175 pounds.
This play helped lead South Carolina to an exciting 33-28 win over the Wolverines. Clowney has already stated that he will win the Heisman in 2013 and with plays like this one who can question him, even as a defensive lineman. Man amongst boys.
