Clemson will soon close out its recruiting efforts for 2018, especially for the offensive line since there only a couple recruits left at the position on the list.
A look forward to next year’s recruits shows several top candidates that are actively looking at the Tigers, one of them being Warren McClendon, Jr.
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound tackle out of Brunswick (Ga.) High School, has already taken visits to Georgia and Alabama this year, and will also be making a trip to Columbia for the South Carolina vs. Florida game.
McClendon said the Georgia game has been his favorite visit so far, because “the atmosphere was just really good.”
While he doesn’t have a planned visit to go to Clemson this season, he will “try to get up there for a game,” although he is not sure which one at this point.
McClendon told The Clemson Insider he has talked to Robbie Caldwell recently about possibly coming to Clemson for a visit, but is still looking to establish a stronger relationship with the coaching staff as a whole. That would be his main purpose in taking a trip up to Death Valley for one of the Tigers last couple of games this year.
“Just getting to know the coaches and to see the facilities,” he said.
According to McClendon, Georgia, Clemson and South Carolina are recruiting him the hardest at this time, but he does not have a favorite yet. McClendon will wait until his senior season to announce his favorites.
McClendon is a big name to keep an eye out for next year as a highly touted four-star recruit ranked in the top 250 players in the country for 2019.
