He was named the Gatorade Football Player of the Year in South Carolina as a senior after passing for 2,683 yards and 30 touchdowns and rushing for 1,194 yards and 20 touchdowns.

He moved to cornerback on an emergency basis prior to his sophomore season in 2019, but after impressing coaches, he remained at the position full time and became a starter.
He had two interceptions, a touchdown and 43 tackles in 15 starts. The Clemson University football team dismissed Kendric in February 2021. This was because of a series of disciplinary issues he had with the team. He revealed in June that he will be transferring to Georgia.
