Jadeveon Clowney, the consensus top player in the nation, will visit Clem this weekend and UNC next weekend. Expect Feb. 14 announcement.
Clowney appears to be a long shot for the Tar Heels at the moment, apparently lagging behind South Carolina and Alabama in his recruitment Tweeted JC Shurburtt, National Recruiting Analyst for 247Sports.com.
