COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Frank Martin says he's glad he's not Michigan's Vincent Smith.

When asked Thursday about Jadeveon Clowney's hit and fumble recovery against Michigan that's been the talk of the sports world, Martin said Clowney had a direct impact on his Gamecock basketball program.

"One of our incoming players (top 100 recruit and Lancaster native Sindarius Thornwell) quit playing football because he got hit by Clowney when he was a sophomore in high school in a football game. So he said, 'I'm not playing football anymore because that hurt.'"
