Hit of the New Year! Jadeveon Clowney’s Football-Changing Fumble Recovery vs. Michigan


South Carolina’s DE and possible future Heisman candidate and #1 NFL draft pick, Jadeveon Clowney had a tackle and fumble creation like no other on Tuesday.

In the Outback Bowl vs. Michigan, Clowney ran through the offensive line right at the snap and hit running back Vincent Smith so hard and so fast that he lost his helmet, and the ball, causing a turnover.

Video ahead:

Clowney, only a sophomore, would not only cause the fumble but get the possession as well for South Carolina.  A play later, they would throw a touchdown pass and ultimately win the game, 33-28.

Here are some GIFs from The Big Lead which show off what could be the hit of the year, which occurred on the very first day of 2013.
