S.C. Recruit Mistaken for Burglar: Top South Carolina college football recruit Jadeveon Clowney was briefly detained and handcuffed by Columbia, S.C., Friday night because he fit the description of a burglar. "Jadeveon was not arrested. It was a mistaken identity and he was let go very soon after they asked him a few questions," said coach Steve Spurrier, who had himself detained and cuffed Saturday while talking to reporters at a scrimmage.

Why would Spurrier get handcuffed at a scrimmage?

According to Rivals.com he is the No. 1 rated recruit in the country.

And yes, he is a young black man. 6'7" with dreadlocks, if he fit the description all black basketball and/or football players in Columbia should be nervous.
