Jadeveon Clowney reportedly ran a 4.5 forty during South Carolina’s recent workouts

According to ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi (via Evan Silva), University of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney ran a 4.5 forty-yard dash at a recent winter workout.

You can check out how fast Clowney is on the field by watching the video above.

Clowney can’t declare for the NFL draft until next year, but many people believe he should hold out from playing in the 2013 college football season so he doesn’t put himself at risk for possibly suffering a serious injury like his former teammate Marcus Lattimore did this past season.

I believe sitting out because you’re afraid of getting injured would be dumb.  It’s silly to sit around and worry about injuries.  The good news is that Clowney has never said he’ll sit oiut.
