Brunswick (Ga.) 2019 four-star offensive tackle Warren McClendon was paid a visit by Clemson co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott recently during the spring evaluation period.
“Coach Scott actually stopped by a week ago and talked to me,” McClendon said. “Just telling me to come by for a visit.”
McClendon, a highly regarded prospect in his class, visited Clemson for the first time in March 2016 and received an offer from the Tigers in January.
He plans to return to Clemson next month.
“Right now I’ll be visiting Clemson on the 7th or 8th of June,” McClendon said. “(I want) to see the new facilities. I’ve heard they’re really nice, and I can’t wait to see them.”
McClendon carries close to 20 offers as a rising junior, including ones from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder said his recruitment is open, though he is looking to trim his list of choices.
“I’m just kind of keeping everything open right now,” McClendon said, “but I will be narrowing things down in a little bit. If I can make it to most of the places I want to visit during the summer, probably before the season starts.”
McClendon listed Clemson, Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Ohio State and Tennessee as the schools recruiting him the hardest.
What stands out to him about the Tigers?
“The coaching staff and the school’s atmosphere,” he said.
McClendon is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 27 offensive tackle and No. 219 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
