McClendon Named Top 25 Recruiter

Feb. 6, 2017

University of South Carolina co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon has been named one of the nation’s top 25 recruiters for the 2017 cycle by, it was announced today.

Here’s what Rivals had to say about McClendon:

“The former Georgia assistant has always handled the city of Atlanta, and he had success once again in the 2017 class. He played a major role in helping land four-star defensive lineman Aaron Sterling on National Signing Day and also helped nab early enrollee defensive tackle MJ Webb. He also helped assist on the Gamecocks’ impressive wide receiver haul of OrTre Smith, Shi Smith and Chad Terrell, all Rivals250 prospects.”

McClendon, 33, just completed his first season at South Carolina. On the field in 2016, McClendon developed sophomore Deebo Samuel and freshman Bryan Edwards into one of the SEC’s finest receiving duos. Samuel paced the team with 59 receptions for 783 yards, while Edwards turned in the second-best true freshman season in Gamecock history behind only Alshon Jeffery, logging 44 catches for 590 yards.
