Jadeveon Clowney may have failed to perfect his pass-rushing technique at South Carolina, but it looks like Steve Spurrier successfully imparted upon Jadeveon how to be a hatin'-ass motherfucker. Asked to autograph something for a Clemson fan at a signing event in Woodruff, S.C., Clowney declined.

This is going to be a popular move with Gamecock fans, but Jadeveon may have to soften his stance if he gets selected by the Broncos, Bears, Browns, Bengals, or Dolphins. Jadeveon famously vowed that the Gamecocks would never lose to Clemson as long he was playing at South Carolina. During JD's time in the garnet and black, USC went 3-0 against their upstate rival and No. 7 accumulated 6.5 sacks of Tajh Boyd.
JD also expressed confidence that he should be taken No. 1 overall in the the NFL Draft by the Houston Texans, whose colors are red and blue.

Clowney also feels that his skill set will be a good match for any team, regardless of how they typically line up on defense.
