South Pointe defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has garnered a lot of attention from the media, the fans and from other players at the Under Armour All American Game practices this week in Orlando.

South Pointe coach Bobby Carroll is coaching linebackers on Clowney's team. He said Monday night Clowney has been under constant seige since arriving for practice.

As for Clowney's work toward making a college decision, Carroll had a surprising observation.

"I'm not so sure he's going to commit on Signing Day," Carrol said. "I think he really wants to look at some other schools."

Clowney has visited USC and is locked in to visit Alabama on Jan. 14. Clemson is scheduled for the 21st and he's undecided about the 28th.

Florida State, Florida and Auburn are possibilities for that final visit.

Carroll had said before he thought USC was leading for Clowney and he still feels that way.

"He's a homeboy," he said. "It's only 50 miles from Rock Hill, and South Carolina had a great year. They've probably got an edge right now. Next in line might be Alabama."
