USC defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is now a consensus All-American. The Gamecock sophomore picked up first team honors from the Associated Press and ESPN today to secure the consensus status. He’s just the fourth player in school history to accomplish the feat, joining George Rogers, Del Wilkes and Melvin Ingram.
Clowney set a school record with 13 sacks this season. He also was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
A few other notables on the AP All-America team: Clemson center Dalton Freeman made the second team and Tigers wide receiver Nuk Hopkins earned third team honors.
