Jalan McClendon, the N.C. State redshirt junior quarterback from Charlotte, will transfer after graduation, the school announced Monday.

In McClendon’s three years with the Wolfpack, he has completed 26 of 47 passes and rushed for 223 yards in 20 games.

McClendon, who’s 6-5 and 221 pounds, has one year of eligibility remaining. It’s unclear yet where he’ll transfer.

Starting quarterback Ryan Finley announced earlier this month that he’s returning for the Wolfpack.

Last week, junior running back Nyheim Hines and offensive tackle Will Richardson announced they are heading to the NFL draft.
