NEW YORK (FOX Carolina) -

University of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is headed to the Houston Texans.

The Texans selected the 249-pound Rock Hill, SC native with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft on Thursday.

Clowney leaves the Gamecocks with the third most sacks of all time for the school with 24, and second most tackles for loss of yards with 47.

He is the twelfth first round draft pick to come out of the University of South Carolina.

USC alumni George Rogers was drafted with the first pick in the 1981 Draft.
