South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney announced after the Capital One Bowl game win that he would be entering the 2014 NFL draft.
“It’s been great. We’ve put everything into this,” Clowney said, via CBS Sports. “I’ll miss everything about Carolina. I love it here.”
Now, his amateurism has officially ended when he signed with Bus Cook Sports.
South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney has signed with Hattiesburg, Miss.-based BC Sports.

There was a lot of speculation he could sign with Jay Z and his Roc Nation sports group. Instead he went with a more traditional sports agent. That hasn’t stopped Clowney from being a fan of Jay Z though.
Clowney recently attended his concert in Charlotte and even got to meet him afterwards. I wonder if Jay Z made some last minute pitches to try and pry Clowney away from Cook.
