QB Jalan McClendon likes spread offense

10/15/2012

Jalan McClendon sees a lot of similarities in the two schools that have offered him a scholarship, North Carolina and Wake Forest.

"They both run a spread offense," the junior quarterback from Charlotte (N.C.) West Mecklenburg said. "They both have a good education. They both have my major [broadcasting]. … They're both good football programs."

Both schools also see the same attributes in McClendon. When asked what coaches from both staffs have told him about his play, McClendon said, "I think it's my arm, my accuracy and my footwork."

McClendon said he'd like to play in a spread offense similar to the one he runs in high school. He said he's recently seen strong interest from LSU and South Carolina.

"They've been sending me lots and lots of letters and invited me to some games," McClendon said.

McClendon said he's considering several visits to schools. Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina State and Ohio State are all on the itinerary. He said he's also trying to get to LSU for a game.
