USC investigating link between Clowney and Jay Z

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The University of South Carolina Athletics Department is investigating whether there's been improper contact between star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and rapper Jay Z.

Jay Z recently started his own sports representation firm known as Roc Nation Sports.

According to NCAA rules, it's okay for a college player to talk with an agent, but they cannot accept money or anything of value.

Gamecocks Coach Steve Spurrier addressed the agent issue in an interview with ESPN Tuesday afternoon.

"Somebody asked me, 'What's your biggest concern for the summer,' and I said, 'Jadeveon Clowney stays quiet and nobody gets him to sell a T-shirt or a jersey or doesn't take any money,' because people are trying to give him money, and Jadeveon's had a very quiet summer, which is the way we like it," said Spurrier.   

If Jay Z is able to sign Clowney following the end of the college football season, it would be the next big catch for the new agent.

Roc Nation Sports already represents New York Yankee Robinson Cano and Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant.

    Rain chances increasing the next few daysRain chances increasing the next few days

    Tonight, skies will be cloudy but we will have a very little chance for rain. It will be slightly warmer overnight. Winds are still blowing out of the south, and that has slightly increased our humidity, and will therefore prevent temperatures from falling tonight. Most of Southwest Louisiana will cool down to the mid 40s, while a couple places may reach the upper 30s. Early Friday morning could have a few light showers near the coast. There is a 20% chance we see some rain.
