I would like to see Nkemdiche and Clowney on the same team.

ended up making in official about 4 days earlier than th 14th and said
it was all at the Request of ESPN to build up to that show they were doing
and his adding Clemson to the list of school he had previously listed was
just for show. He and his mom visited Clemson, and his mom came out and
said she was impressed with the school and the staff. THAT's When
Clemson fans went giddy thinking they were in the running now. They
were never in the running. To this day when they talk about Clowney
they still bring up the fact that they were close to signing him, because
they got mom in their corner and that's what Made Clowney put them
second on their list.....If they look at FACTS, even though Clowney's
mom said she was impressed with the campus and the coaches, she never
made the statement that she wanted her son to go there, nor did she
indicate at any time she would like to see Jadeveon Play at Clemson.
AND... there was never a statement by JD himself in support of what
his mom said. He was a Gamecock since his freshman year in HS.

With Clowney, there was no argument. Many experts said he was the best player in 20 years. A few said he was the best football player they had ever seen. Period.

There's no comparing these two football players.

Spot on, Legalman. Like you, I won't demean Clowney's demonstrated results at the highest level of college football by comparing him to the hype and hope surrounding a good-but unproven-high school recruit.

In my book, it wouldn't be much different than comparing Price or Roth to a Little League pitcher. What's the point? Why waste my time? LOL.

Default Re: Clowney vs Nkemdiche

One has already proved himself and one is still dreaming about what it will be like to play in college. It's an insult to Clowney to compare anyone in this class to him.

Default Re: Clowney vs Nkemdiche

I watched Jr and senior highlights of both players. Nkemdiche's highlights look really good. Clowney's are "shake your head" unbelievable. Watching both, I believe 3/4ths of Nkemdiche's wouldn't have made Clowney's tape. They are certainly different style players. The high school recruiting services rated Clowney higher than any player in a ten-year span, and I think they were correct. Nkemdiche will probably start as a freshman, but if he gets Heisman votes his second year, I will be surprised.

Default Re: Clowney vs Nkemdiche

Lets see what Nkemdiche does against SEC level talent before we make any comparisons to Clowney. When he leads the nation in sacks, in the best league in the nation, then we can talk. If he does go to Clem that will never be an argument with any validity.

I hate to disagree with you, Spurticus, but clemtech fans will tell you that the only reason that Clowney didn't go to clemtech is because he couldn't meet their high academic standards. It's not true, but that's what they believe.

Clemson fans would lose their minds if he somehow ended up at Carolina. It would be hilarious if it happened.
