Tennessee's quarterback play has been anything but consistent this year as Justin Worley, Joshua Dobbs and Nathan Peterman have all seen time behind center. There is no clear quarterback of the future in Knoxville and the Volunteers appear to be interested in finding one as this class comes to a close.
As the Vols scramble to fill the position they are starting to look at quarterbacks that are committed to other schools, including McClendon.
The West Mecklenburg quarterback said the interest is flattering but he doesn't plan to explore anything there.
"It's true that they're coming after me. They said they really want me to come up there and be their quarterback. They want me to come up for a visit," he said.
"I'm 100% solid with NC State and I'm done with the recruiting process. I'm not going to be taking any other visits."
McClendon told Pack Pride several weeks ago that he was solid with NCSU and that still seems to be holding true now. Even as the team has struggled in Dave Doeren's first season with the program McClendon has stayed true to his word, convinced that the Wolfpack has brighter days ahead.
He visited State for the Central Michigan game along with many other recruits earlier this year and he said he watched the Duke game over the weekend.
McClendon has helped West Mecklenburg to a 9-2 record and a playoff matchup with Providence Friday evening. He is rated a four star prospect and the No. 19 quarterback in the nation by Scout.com.
