"It was fun," he said. "I got to meet some of the players I hadn't met, and I got to hang out with Jacoby [Brissett] a lot. I got to hang out with the coaches even more... talk some more about the offense.
"I've been there a lot before but on the official they show you even more love. The best part was just having fun with the coaches and players."
This week McClendon is down in South Carolina where he will represent North Carolina tomorrow in the 2013 Shrine Bowl. Expected to start at quarterback, McClendon believes the system being implemented is ideal for his skillset.
"I think it fits how I play," he stated. "I'm a spread guy that likes to throw the ball out quick so I think what we're doing down here fits my game.
"I expect a lot out of myself and our team. I have better athletes around me so I expect a lot."
Two of those athletes are wide receivers Maurice Trowell and Trevion Thompson. Trowell is already committed to NC State, and the Wolfpack is heavily pursuing Thompson.
"Maurice, that's my guy," said McClendon. "Being down here with him is great because we're getting in reps together before we go up to State. We're still trying to get Trevion up to State. Right now I think his top choices are State, West Virginia, Clemson, and Ohio State.
"Both of them can play. They can get out there a and catch the ball and run. They have speed, good hands... they are good athletes."
McClendon continues to hear from a SEC school, but he maintains that he has ended his recruitment.
"Tennessee is still coming after me," he said. "But, I'm done with the recruiting process."
The four-star prospect is regarded as the No. 21 quarterback in the 2014 class by Scout.com.
