Recruiting: Kendrick committed to Clemson at the conclusion of a junior day visit. He also had offers from USC, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Penn State, Florida State, LSU and Notre Dame.

With the Tigers: After making the move from wide receiver to cornerback, Kendrick totaled 63 tackles, four tackles for loss, three interceptions and 11 passes defended at Clemson.

Potential landing spots: Georgia, Texas, Mississippi State, South Carolina, West Virginia, TCU, Florida, Minnesota

Farrell’s Take: Kendrick was a five-star wide receiver out of high school, but he turned into an elite cornerback at Clemson and should be an immediate starter someplace. He has something to prove and will have a chip on his shoulder. He has the size and athleticism to be a great one and has future first-round potential. With the multiple discipline issues at Clemson he's a bit of a wildcard, but for a national contender or local school in need of a shutdown corner he's worth the risk.
