COLUMBIA, S.C. - University of South Carolina sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was named to the Walter Camp first-team All-America squad, it was announced tonight.

He has been tabbed as the Hendricks Award winner, which recognizes the nation's top defensive end, is a AFCA All-American, was the coaches' choice as the SEC Defensive Player of the Year, and was a first-team All-SEC selection by both the coaches and the Associated Press.

Clowney, a three-time SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week this season, was also named first team All-American by FoxSportsNext.com on Thursday.
