News: NFL Bound Star Heats Up Roc Nation Sports Rumors W/ Jay Z
Sunday, Jan 5, 2014 9:23PM
University of South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney is doing nothing to slow down rumors and speculation of him possibly joining forces with Roc Nation Sports in the coming months after hanging out with rap mogul Jay Z over the weekend.
A photo of Clowney and Young Hov has started to circulate across the Internet.
Jadeveon Clowney is now your latest hyped up future professional star to take a picture with a superstar rapper. This time it's no other than Jay Z at the Charlotte, NC stop of the Magna Carta World Tour. "Having a good night tonight. With Jay Z chilling," Clowney captioned the above photo. What exactly differentiates chilling and taking an Instagram photo with a rapper though? Drake and Johnny Manziel? They chill. Clowney could've been hanging with Jay Z too, but the businessman doesn't even look all that thrilled in this picture. At least Clowney is having a good time before the Draft though. (Complex)
Following an ESPN interview with his school last summer, Clowney publicly name-checked ESPN over him possibly violating NCAA rules by speaking to Jay.
"Come on ESPN just playing football," Clowney tweeted July 23.

Days prior, ESPN reporter Chris Fowler talked to Clowney's head coach Steve Spurrier about the controversy.
"All of our conversations [with Clowney] are wait until you have played your last game at South Carolina. When the bowl game is over this coming season he's free to accept any amount of money anybody wants to give him. But until then he has to be a student-athlete like all the other guys or he's not going to be eligble. He's done a good job of knowing that." (ESPN)
Reports of Jadeveon sparking Young Hov's interest made its rounds online last July.
Now, Inside the League is reporting that Jay has been keeping in contact with Jadeveon Clowney of South Carolina, who is projected to be a top three pick in next year's NFL Draft. Not a bad haul for Roc Nation Sports, if the report is true. Of course, we'll have to wait until next year to see if this actually happens. So, keep an eye out for Clowney throwing the diamond up after hits like this one. (Complex)
