McLendon commits to Florida State at #RivalsChallenge

ATLANTADerrick McLendon is competing at the Rivals 100 Five-Star Challenge presented by adidas inside Mercedes Benz Stadium on Thursday, but that is not all he did.

The 6-foot-4, 225 pound four-star defensive end out of Tucker (Ga.) announced his commitment to Florida State live from the event as well.

Watch his decision here:

He narrowed his list down to Florida, Florida State and NC State a few weeks ago.

Florida State made a quick move with McLendon. The Seminoles did not offer until April 6, a day before McLendon left for his last visit to Florida. He was in Tallahassee (Fla.) the day coach Willie Taggart offered and he returned June 1 for a second unofficial visit.
