Clowney Watch: Mom impressed on USC visit

Jadeveon Clowney's mother was impressed when she and her husband came with him on an unofficial visit to USC on Saturday night for the basketball game against Kentucky.

"I enjoyed it and he enjoyed it too," said Clowney's mother, Josenna. "Everything is still the same. He still hasn't made up his mind."

South Pointe defensive end Clowney is the nation's No. 1 recruit on most boards.

Josenna Clowney said they enjoyed their time talking with Steve Spurrier and the other USC coaches.

And her son certainly noticed when the fans started to chant his name.

"I think he really like that," she said. "He just laughed."

Josenna Clowney said the plan is for them to visit Clemson this coming weekend as scheduled. After that, she's not sure if they'll take any more visits.

Alabama coaches are scheduled to visit Thursday. USC coaches also will be in this coming week, but the day has not been determined.
