UNC trying to balance how much to focus on Clowney - Fox Sports Carolinas
Chaz Sutton. Kelcy Quarles. J.T. Surratt. Some great-sounding names in that group. But none of them have a tenth of the name recognition as the fourth starter on South Carolina's defensive line: Jadeveon Clowney.

At this time a year ago, Quinshad Davis was homesick. Stricken with it. He called home to his mother in Gaffney, S.C., every day, without fail, as a freshman. To begin his sophomore year, the North Carolina wide receiver is going his home state, but for the Tar Heels' opening game at South Carolina as their go-to target. Bigger, stronger and more at home in Chapel Hill, Davis' personality has started to emerge just as his game started to emerge over the second half of last season.
