McClendon said along with Florida State, he will possibly visit Clemson and LSU in the near future.
Although it is early, McClendon has a top three.
"Florida State, then (North) Carolina and Clemson – in that order," said the 6-foot-5, 195-pound McClendon. "I'm not sure when I'm going to narrow my list down, though. It's going to come down to whoever is the most interested in me."
The West Mecklenburg star is not in any hurry to make his college decision.
"As far as my decision, I'm still thinking about waiting until Signing Day," McClendon said.
"I'm looking for a school where I can get a good education, has a good football program and has a good atmosphere."
