Hey everyone, this is Warren McClendon with my very first entry of my RecruitDiary. I just want to say that I could not be more excited to share my story with you and do so in my own words. I am a Class of 2019 offensive tackle and play for Brunswick High School in Brunswick, Ga. I am one of the top players in Georgia and my recruitment is just getting started. My diary is going to give exclusive insight into my recruitment and my career.

I currently hold offers from Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Kentucky, with a number of other major programs showing a lot of interest. I have visited South Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia so far, but hope to visit a lot more schools in the next coming months. Tennessee was my favorite visit. The atmosphere in Knoxville is unlike any other, and a lot of other recruits will agree with me. They have something special up there and it will be very interesting to see what happens with them in the time leading up to when I have to make a decision. One thing is for sure though: If you are a recruit, I implore you to visit Tennessee.

My favorite coach I have talked to is by far Coach Pittman from UGA. His personality is the greatest and he has so much swagger. When you first meet Coach Pittman it feels like you have known each other for years because he is so easy to talk to and so genuine, which makes him the most likable guy.

I want to use football to take me places where I could have never imagined. My dream though is to be able to take care of my parents and my family. They are my biggest fans and I do my best in trying to make them proud and to represent them well on and off the field. I want to be able to dominate at the highest level in college, and my hard work now is going to determine whether I will be able to or not. My favorite recruiting moment was when I received my first offer from The University of Alabama. It was amazing and something I will never forget. To know that Nick Saban was the first coach to believe in me to the point to offer me a scholarship is really special.
