SC's Ulric Jones Publicly Apologizes To Clemson's Deshaun Watson, Shaq Lawson

The Clemson vs. South Carolina rivalry heated up a bit this week, as three-star JUCO transfer Ulric Jones took a few shots at the Tigers on social media. Jones, who has yet to play a down for the Gamecocks, took exception to a quote by Clemson Deshaun Watson on Facebook, and later taunted fans on Twitter. But it appears that he's done talking - at least for now. Jones took to Twitter this morning to apologize for his behavior - he also specifically apologized to Watson and defensive end Shaq Lawson, who he got into it a bit with as well.

">@Shaq_Lawson90 I just haven't made a place to disrespect anybody especially those two players.

Both Watson and Lawson responded, and it looks like everyone is good heading into the season.

Sadly, it doesn't look like Jones plans on taking over Steve Spurrier's title as the biggest troll at South Carolina. Regardless, this year's contest should be fantastic.
