Spurrier: South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney runs 4.4 40, handles spotlight well

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier adds another entry in the growing legend of Jadeveon Clowney.

Spurrier said Tuesday at the Southeastern Conference media days that his All-America defensive end ran a 4.4 40 at the end of summer workouts.

Clowney is regarded as a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate a year after Notre Dame linebacker Manti Teo finished second. Clowney was sixth.

But Spurrier says his star defender has done a good job staying out of the limelight and been a good teammate.

The Gamecocks coach was even asked if there was a chance that Clowney could play on offense. His response: "Not really. We got a bunch of offensive players that are pretty good."
