Cards move ahead of SEC power for McLendon

Okeem McLendon has already rushed for more than 1,100 yards this season. With that kind of production, several big-time programs are showing considerable interest in his recruitment. McLendon is sorting out his official visits and he's got a favorite in mind.

Okeem McLendon is a 3 star running back from Montezuma, Georgia who has racked up impressive numbers this season. Auburn was on top early but he has since changed his mind. Who now leads for the Middle Georgia standout?

"Louisville is now on top," McLendon said. "Tulane would be second. Auburn is third. I want to replace Ball State with Tennessee. Keep South Carolina on there."

What does McLendon like about the Louisville program?

"I just like their program. They produce good backs (Running Backs). They always have good backs. Their offense fits my style."

McLendon is ready to finish the season strong.

"I'm at 1,100 (yards) right now. I want to rush for at least 200 (yards) in every game we have left. I hope we can run the table. If we do that we'll definitely get in the playoffs."

McLendon has one offer from Louisville. He plans to organize his official visits later this week.
