Both Houston Texans have ties to the two-time All-SEC defensive end. Swearinger played alongside Clowney for two seasons when the two were teammates at South Carolina. Joseph and Clowney both grew up in the small town of Rock Hill, South Carolina and remain close family friends.
To show his support for his fellow Gamecock, Swearinger attended Clowney’s Pro Day on Thursday. While the media was full of praise for the 6-5 ½, 266-pound defensive end, Swearinger was pleased but not surprised.
“He did what I always expect him to do," Swearinger said afterwards. "Come out here and do what you need to do to get where he wants to get. I think he made a good push for it today.”
The Texans are evaluating Clowney and plan to bring him to Houston for a visit later this month.
