For the second time in a month, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was stopped for driving his car at an excessive speed.
Clowney was issued a speeding ticket on Thursday morning near downtown Columbia, S.C., when police charged him with going 84 mph in a 55 mph zone, The State newspaper reported after obtaining the citation.
In early December, Clowney was stopped by a South Carolina state trooper after he was clocked at 110 mph in a 70-mph zone on Interstate 77 north of Columbia. He received a $355 ticket after that incident.
Clowney faces the possibility of having his driver's license suspended for accumulating too many points, The State reported.
Earlier in the week, Clowney said he was as healthy as he has been all season as the Gamecocks prepare to face Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 1.
That almost certainly will be the final college game for Clowney, a junior who is expected to be among the first picks in the 2014 NFL Draft despite a season that fell short of expectations after he was named an All-American in 2012.
