A big area where JD has improved.
 
One area where JD has improved leaps and bounds is his public speaking as well as his vocabulary. When i saw his announcement out of high school he could barely form a sentence, and his vocabulary was similar to that of a 5th graders.

Now im not saying he has the public speaking ability of Obama or anyone, but he is so much better now. When i heard his interviews this year and today i could not believe how much more eloquent and intelligent he sounded.

The funny part is Clemson always bashes our academics, but their players (Chode) sound like theyve never been to class while ours obviously gained something from those 3-4 years.

Not a good thread starter. I think it belongs elsewhere.

This is something we probably all realize but out of respect to JD..don't discuss.

When you get asked the same question about 1,000 times (How's your work ethic?), you get pretty good at answering it.

They aren't paying him for talking.

USC does a good job of teaching players in its program about how important establishment of a brand is for a professional athlete. We are leaps and bounds ahead of the school in the Upstate in that regard. Contrasting with USC, that place appears to not really give a crap about their players' potential professional careers, and seems to be primarily interested in using the players' talents for securing higher salaries for the coaching staff for the school up yonder.

There are very few players who can come right into a school and fill a room with their personality in a press conference. It comes with being more comfortable with the spotlight. Just look at Marcus Lattimore's improvements from when he was a Freshman to now.

Clowney always seems like he is having fun in interviews. I've never been around him, but he seems like his personality would be infectious.

Agree....good natured guy and kinda refreshing. Hope he stays the way he is and projects as someone having fun.
He could be another George Foreman...kids are attracted to him.

Saying he had the vocabulary of a fifth grader is pretty harsh. I believe he had a learning disability in high school anyway. Really think JD was just young and nervous (actually pretty shy) with his public speaking when he first came to Carolina. Not uncommon at all for a kid coming out of high school. I noticed a big change in his interview presence last offseason before his junior year. I'd like to see how people on this board would do in front of so many cameras on live tv.

I could care less what level JD reads at. I watched him play football - not take physics test. Dude has more money than I ever will so good for him.

My guess is this is one area where his agent and their team have really worked with Clowney.
