It’s been an aww-inducing week for male athletes. First, Kevin DuRant made a room full of grown men cry by calling his mom the MVP of the NBA. And last night, the University of South Carolina’s own Jadeveon Clowney made the audience at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
say a collective “aw.” Fallon asked Clowney what the first thing he’s going to buy when he becomes a millionaire. The answer: a house for his mom, who he still lives with.
Clowney made his Tonight Show
appearance on the eve of the NFL draft in which he’s expected to go in the first round. Of course, Clowney’s famous hit in the 2013 Outback Bowl was discussed along with the many mispronunciations of his name. And just because it’s Jimmy Fallon, Fallon ran a 40-yard dash, which he finished in just under seven seconds; for the record, Clowney can finish it in 4.53 seconds. Watch the clip below.
The NFL draft airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
