Spurrier: Clowney on track academically

There have been rumblings that the nation's top prospect, defensive end Jadeveon Clowney of Rock Hill, S.C., might struggle to qualify academically.

Not so, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said Monday after Clowney signed with the Gamecocks.

"He's actually a lot better off than a lot of our signees at this time," Spurrier said. "We fully anticipate that he's going to make it. He's in pretty good shape up there."
