By this time next week, former South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney will have a new set of colors to represent – considering he’s a lock to go in the first round of this year’s NFL Draft. But for now, he’s still all about the garnet and black, and not at all about orange. Clowney did an autograph session today with former Tigers wideout Sammy Watkins, but refused to sign orange gear when asked. He reportedly claimed he is “allergic” to that color.
Clemson fan tried to get Clowney to sign orange gear. Didn’t happen. “I can’t sign that. That’s a bad color. I’m allergic to that color.”

He better hope he doesn’t wind up playing for the Cincinnati Bengals at any point in his career. He’ll have to find some kind of cure for that allergy.
