YouWager line movers have learned that South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is possibly out for the spring due to neck and back pain.
The 20 year-old player, who will enter the 2013 college football season as a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate, sprained his neck last week when he collided with defensive tackle J.T. Surratt during practice and wasn’t cleared to practice earlier this week.
Clowney was also unable to attend Saturday’s scrimmage but is likely to be fine once fall camp rolls around.
In the previous college football season the South Carolina native tied for second nationally in sacks (13) and tackles for loss (23.5). Clowney is fifth in school history with 21.0 sacks and is tied for second with 35.5 tackles for loss.
The Gamecocks will end the spring Saturday with its annual Garnet & Black Spring Game.
