South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was cited by the South Carolina Highway Patrol for speeding Saturday for driving 40 miles per hour over the posted speed limit, according to WIS-TV.

Clowney, according to the report, was going 110 miles per hour in a Chrysler 300 when he was pulled over on Interstate 77 Saturday night around 7:30 p.m. The highway's listed speed limit is 70 miles per hour.

Officials say he was immediately ticketed and that no other citations were issued in the incident.

Clowney, a junior, had 35 total tackles, three sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss this season. He is expected to be one of the top picks in the NFL Draft should he forego his senior season of eligibility.
