As a fanbase, it's time we recognize Jadeveon Clowney's days as a niche legend are over. For now, dude is Big Time, and as his star profile's growing ever larger. As such, he's understandably been thrust further into the national spotlight, to the point that news of major appearances and/or endorsements is becoming ho-hum. And for his part, he seems to be doing quite well with it.
The latest wave of exposure will come in the form of an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, slated for this Wednesday. Clowney will probably smile a lot, provide some pre-loaded answers to agent-vetted questions, and hopefully work in some Clemson shit-talk.
Hey, do you remember some years ago hearing about a preening teen star named Zac Efron? Maybe you've seen him pop up in some big boy films lately? He's the other guest on Wednesday's show, meaning we'll get to watch Zac Efron shake hands with Jadeveon Clowney on television which will probably be as weird to see as it felt to type.
Let's see how the two measure up!

Other guests include noted sweaty person Guy Fieri and singer Sarah McLachlan, who will likely decline to speak to Clowney due to the amount of pain he's inflicted on Dawgs.
Fallon's on at 11:35 PM, EST, but you'll probably watch it on YouTube the next morning. It's okay. So will we.
