Clowney's monster hit still scaring NCAA offences

NCAA college football kicked off last week and saw a return to the field for South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney - the projected number one pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

Clowney is basically every offences worst nightmare - a blurring mass of speed, power and brute force - one that stands 6ft-6in, weighs 19.5 stone and moves like a sprinter.

The Gamecocks kicked off their season with a 27-10 win over local rivals North Carolina, but most of the attention was focussed on the projected NFL superstar.

And with good reason. This Clowney hit from last season has become the stuff of legend.

Against Michigan in the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day 2013, Clowney demolished the Wolverines running-back for an eight-yard loss on one play, forcing a fumble and recovering it himself in five seconds of controlled destruction.

It swung the tide of the game in the Gamecocks favour - they were down by a point at the time - and went on to win 33-28.

College football fans across the country will be tuning in this weekend as Clowney suits up to face number 11-ranked Georgia in one of the most anticipated match-ups of the season.

Will the Georgia offensive line be able to stop Clowney - one church in the state is asking for divine inspiration - or will we see another one of those bone-shuddering hits?
