Last season as a junior, McClendon recorded 58 tackles, 6 sacks, 8 tackles for a loss, 15 QB pressures and forced 2 fumbles.
"I think I intimidate a lot of guys out there because of my size and speed," McClendon said. "Teams are very surprised I can move so well for being so big and fast, I have good skills and I can stop the run or rush the passer. On offense, I play guard and I pull and trap a lot."
McClendon is also very strong. He bench presses 375, squats 565 and power cleans 340. He plans on attending the Nike Camp at Auburn next month.
