ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney says he will enter the NFL draft.

Likely the top overall talent in the draft class, Clowney finished his college career Wednesday in the Gamecocks' 34-24 victory over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl.

"Before we even put the pads on, I thought we've only got 60 minutes and it's over with," he said. "I'm going to be sad about it. ... I'm excited to move forward with my life, though."

The junior had five tackles against the Badgers.
