In a new ESPN article Jadeveon Clowney's high school football coach Bobby Carroll says that, "For some reason (fall of 2008) Clowney expressed a great interest to go to Michigan." The article doesn't go on to say what happened to cool that interest, but that Tony Gibson was recruiting him. I found this to be quite interesting. Link below.
“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
