    Nick Saban recruited Clowney out of high school and was quoted as saying he was the only player he's ever seen that that was NFL ready in high school. Clowney has had his eye on the NFL since then and with all the injuries that he was witness to (remember that AWFUL injury to Marcus Lattimoore?) it's no wonder he took it a little bit easy this season. The guy just didn't want to get hurt and I don't blame him. He would have been out of MILLIONS of dollars if he had suffered an injury. It's a stupid rule that the NFL has to keep players out of the league 3 years removed from high school. Someone with Clowney's talent should be able to go to the league when they want to.

    Just like Maurice Clarrett. Another guy with amazing talent and terrible work ethic. How did that one work out?

    I grew up in the same city as Maurice, use to go to all his Fball games like he was the next big star, and at one point was suppose to be.

    I still feel like he could of went straight to the league out of high school.

    No one questioned his work ethic until he was in the pro's tho and at that point he was a alcoholic.

    He did change his life around tho, really cool person

    Adrian Peterson is another one I remember being talked about as someone who could have done it.

    And is Maurice out of jail? And safe? Heard he racked up some sketchy debt with some sketchier people.

    He has been out, played 2 years in the UFL and now he teamed up with Tressel and does speeches for young troubled youth, he goes to prisons and talks to the prisoners and just stuff like that. Also going back to OSU to finish his degree. Cool little comeback

    But ya AP is the poster child for talented and hard working

    Came back from 2 pretty serious injuries and still is a beast.

    Good for him man! Shame it came too late to have an NFL career. But good that it came before his life was ruined.
