QB Austin Kendall Profile
That quarterback was Charlotte Catholic's Austin Kendall.
"I had a very nice overall," he told CUTigers, during a recent interview. "I was able to see a lot of things I didn't get to see on the game visit. I saw all the facilities, the academics, the weight room, all of the other facilties that I haven't seen -- the indoor.
"I talked to all of the coaches, coach [Chad] Morris, coach [Joe] Craddock, coach [Dabo] Swinney and coach[Danny] Pearman."
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound quarterback was excited to be there.
"I was one of maybe two or three 2016 people that were there. I was the only 2016 quarterback there, so that was kind of special. It was an elite kind of junior day, I'd never been to one like that. It was a lot of top guys," he said. "Basically, coach Swinney told me I had a great year. He saw film on me."
Tennessee, N.C. State and Wake Forest have offered. Kendall thinks Clemson or UCLA could be next.
He has no leaders.
"I'm just waiting to see right now, just build relationships with all of the coaches that I have so far," Kendall said.
When he's ready to commit, one primary factor will be considered.
"I definitely want the coach to be there if I do commit. Coach Swinney just signed an eight-year contract, so he's definitely committed to the team and the players," Kendall said. "That's what he talked about during junior day…basically having a good relationship with the quarterback coach and all of the coaches around. I want the school I chose to not only be good in football, but good academically, a good academic program as well."
As a sophomore, Kendall passed for 1,668 yards and 20 touchdowns.
