One member of the UNC Tar Heels football team had a plan to shut down South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney on Thursday evening in Columbia, but it wasn’t pretty.
Tar Heels offensive tackle Kiaro Holts delivered what appears to be one heck of a dirty hit on Clowney’s knees in the second half of South Carolina’s 27-10 win. Holts appeared to fall or slip, but he clearly targeted Clowney’s lower body as a landing strip. The Gamecocks’ star defensive end wasn’t injured on the play, despite how bad it looks.
