"They pass the ball a lot and always spread it out. They don't just use one WR."

Rendrick has already attended the Clemson and South Carolina Junior Days, and says that's when the Tigers offered him. He'll also be attending both the in-state camps this summer.

The Tigers have a slight lead over Georgia (childhood fave), South Carolina, Maryland and Tennessee. "I like the colors Georgia has and I always wanted to live in Georgia. I used to go there a lot and really liked it."

The Gamecocks are just under two hours from his house, but Rendrick says that won't be an issue. "It really don't matter to me. I'd consider going away from home."

Rendrick finished his JR year with 28 receptions, 800 yds and eight TDs. On defense, he had 50 tackles and one pick. He also had one rushing TD and two kick returns for TDs.

"I'm big and have good speed. I break tackles a lot and am hard to bring down. I want to cut better and perfect my routes."

"I may graduate early and if I do I'll be making my commitment just after the season. If I don't graduate early I'll wait it out."
