USC was not successful in its exhaustive efforts to land OL Warren McClendon of Brunswick, GA. McClendon, whose cousin is USC offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon, announced a commitment to Georgia Monday morning. Florida, Tennessee and Auburn also were on his short list but his recruiting boiled down to the Gamecocks and Bulldogs and Will Muschamp and McClendon made him a priority.
