COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina’s athletics department is looking into reports that star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney may have had contact with rap mogul Jay Z.
Jay Z, who’s real name is Shawn Carter, has recently started a talent representative agency for athletes called Roc Nation Sports. Earlier this summer, he made a splash when he signed Kevin Durant of the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder to a deal.
A report from “Inside the League,” a football insider website, claimed Clowney was in “regular contact” with Jay Z about possibly signing with the rapper’s company. The report did not list any sourcing for that claim.
An Instagram account believed to be operated by Clowney posted a link to an article discussing the report. Below the post was written “You kno [sic] we about to turn up. Dream coming true.”
