How a former South Carolina coach compares Jordan Burch with Jadeveon Clowney

COLUMBIA, S.C. — All the drama that surrounded South Carolina getting Jordan Burch on its football team hasn’t given much room for the question of exactly what the Gamecocks have now that the five-star defensive lineman has signed.

But Brad Lawing knows much of the answer to that question, and few people in the world are as qualified to answer it.

Lawing, a 40-year coaching veteran, was South Carolina’s defensive line coach from 1989 to 1998 and from 2006 to 2012. That means he was the Gamecocks’ defensive line coach when Jadeveon Clowney signed with and played for the team. Clowney, who was the No. 1 overall prospect in the nation when he chose to stay in-state and sign with South Carolina, is the only Gamecocks signee ranked higher than Burch.

Burch, who will join the team for fall practices, was given a .9954 rating by 247Sports’ composite system. Clowney was a perfect 1.0.

Lawing won’t compare Burch — or anyone…
