Dendy said he's been hearing from Clemson and USC and he said they would like him to visit.
"One of the South Carolina assistants has talked to one of my assistant coaches," Dendy said. "They want me to come in and work out." Dendy said he has offers from Iowa State, Maryland, SMU and Missouri. He said he plans to visit USC, Maryland, Missouri and Iowa State.
