Default Clowney and Jay-Z?

Im not sure how much truth there is to this, but I hope Clowney keeps his patience and does not make any irresponsible decisions. It's now starting to trend on twitter.

http://ocnnreport.com/2013/07/22/rep...eveon-clowney/

Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports has some profile clients, but needs that one client, that ground breaking signing that can totally spin the earths wheels on its axis.

Pro Football Zone is reporting that Hova might be working on that monumental signing as we speak.

According to reports, Jay Z is pushing hard to sign South Carolina All American Jadeveon Clowney, and rumors suggest they’ve already had some in-depth conversation.


If Jay Z is having direct contact with Clowney, it would directly violate the runner rule, that NFLPA types have already tried to corner him on.

We’ll have more for you as this story develops.

This may be true, but how credible is the "OchoCinco News Network"?

Default Re: Clowney and Jay-Z?

Either way, there would be no wrong on Clowney's part if he was in contact with Jay-Z because he isn't an official agent.

Right now, until Jay-Z is an official agent, it would be like me approaching Clowney and telling him I could get him an awesome contract for signing with whoever. It holds nothing.

Basically, people are pissed because a popular figure like Jay-Z is a middle man...or very attractive connection...to his own sports agency.

I doubt this is true as well...although there may be some smoke.

Yeah, I don't know all the rules, but I'm sure the NCAA would find a reason to put their nose in it even so. Jay-Z is officially a licensed agent for MLB and the NBA.

That's what I think as well, I just hope nothing more comes out of it. I just hope Clowney stays responsible by not accepting any benefits from any sports agency. We all knew this was going to happen at some point in his career, and I'm sure there are other agencies that have tried to approach him.

If JayZ tampers with Clowney, Columbia is going to succeed from the Union.

Jay-Z is way too business savvy to violate NCAA regulations...and if he did, it wouldn't be publicized.

The NCAA doesn't care about Jay-Z. If the NCAA finds out that Jay-Z is violating rules may it be in South Carolina or Oregon, or Southern Cal - they will put their nose in that pile of crap and gather all the information they can to then decided how they can be even more confusing to anyone who follows their actions. Here's my thoughts on the NCAA:

NCAA: Oh, Jay-Z was paying Clowney $2000/month to guarantee he'd sign to Jay-Z when he declares for draft?
USC/JD: We declare to comment.
NCAA: Oh...okay, here's a $100 fine.
USC/JD: Geez, thanks.




NCAA: Oh, your assistant coach sent a "butt-text" to a 2 star recruit?
Memphis: He did?
NCAA: Yes, I have a lot of document information.
Memphis: Sorry, must have been an honest mistake.
NCAA: We don't believe in honest mistakes. DEATH PENALTY.


Okay, so that was a little exaggerated, but still.

As long as Jay-Z hasn't issued any improper benefits (dinners, flights to see him, etc) then as the rules state...he is just another person.

Although, I suppose I could see a stretch of the rules where they could say that without Clowney's status as a premier student athlete...he would not have the company of Jay-Z as other people would have.

I am fairly certain USC's compliance staff is on top of Clowney's every move, especially with regards to improper benefits and such...

Obviously at this point it's nothing more than rumors from a non-credible site that none of us have ever heard of. I hope it stays that way.

They can't be on him every move. That would require someone to live with him. They can't hold his hand across the street. He's going to be on his own. He's going to have a phone.

I'm not saying he's done anything, but it IS hard. Just look at LBJ. It's hard not to cash in early when you know you're going to be making a ton of money. It's hard to say "Hey man, thanks but I can't accept those $240 pair of shoes that I've been wanting since they got released".

I understand that our compliance department will attempt to do everything they can do to prevent anything like this from happening. I just hope they made him realize the effects of breaking these rules. He's not only hurting himself with all the possible negative publicity, but he's hurting his teammates, his coaches, and this program if he were to violate the rules (on purpose).

I just hope he's educated about it and makes the right choices. He's a good guy and means well. But he knows he is worth a lot of money and he's ready to actually see it.
