Ex-UCLA guard Will McClendon is transferring to San Jose State for the 2024-25 season.

"Will McClendon brings the type of character and talent we need at San Jose State," Spartans coach Tim Miles said. "He is a two-way guard that can make plays with the ball in his hand or off the ball. He has competed at a high level in high school and college. Defensively, Will has the ability to guard multiple positions and adds much needed flexibility in our backcourt. We are very excited to have Will on board."

247Sports ranked the 6-foot-3 McClendon as a four-star prospect in the Class of 2021 out of Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas.

He missed the 2021-22 season due to an injury. He appeared in 60 games for the Bruins, including all 33 in the 2023-24 season when he averaged 4.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

San Jose State was 9-23 (2-16 Mountain West Conference) last season.
