Notes: Charlotte (NC) West Meck quarterback Jalan McClendon visited NC State over the weekend, and yesterday he verbally committed to the Wolfpack.
McClendon has had a strong evaluation period, picking up offers in the last two weeks from NC State, Miami, and Virginia to go along with previous offers from Florida State, North Carolina, Wake Forest, East Carolina, and UNC-Charlotte.
McClendon had a stellar junior year where he led West Mecklenburg to a 9-4 record, the school's best mark in nearly 25 years. He finished the season with over 2,000 yards of total offense, 22 total touchdowns, and just eight interceptions.
Here are highlights of McClendon in action from his junior season at West Meck!
