2014 Outlook
Greg McMullen was one of four defensive ends to see extensive playing time during the 2013 season, and this season McMullen is expected to take on a much expanded role. The 6-3, 280-pound McMullen has outstanding size and strength, allowing him to be effective against the run, while also having the ability to rush opposing passers.

McMullen is the frontrunner to earn the starting defensive end job opposite All-Big Ten performer Randy Gregory. Only a sophomore, McMullen is also a key part of a influx of young talent on the front four that figures to provide a foundation for the Blackshirt defense for years to come. McMullen earned Academic All-Big Ten honors last season.

2013 (Redshirt Freshman)
McMullen played in 11 games and totaled 16 tackles, including nine solo stops. He recorded four tackles for loss, including a 10-yard sack at Purdue. McMullen had a season-high four tackles against Southern Miss, including a pair of tackles for loss, and a forced fumble. He also recorded two tackles each against Wyoming, Michigan and Michigan State, including a tackle for loss against the Spartans. McMullen had three quarterback hurries.

2012 (Freshman)
McMullen redshirted his first season at Nebraska.

Before Nebraska (Hoban HS)
McMullen was one of the most dominant defenders in Ohio throughout his prep career at Akron’s Hoban High School. McMullen and fellow Ohio product LeRoy Alexander (Toledo) give NU six signees from Ohio in Bo Pelini’s five recruiting classes, including four in the past two seasons. The 6-3, 280-pound McMullen racked up more than 40 sacks during his career and was a regular in the lineup since his freshman season. McMullen capped his career with 78 tackles, 12.5 sacks and 14 tackles for loss as a senior. His play for Coach Ralph Orsini earned McMullen North Coast Blue Division Player-of-the-Year honors. He was also a first-team Division III All-Ohio selection for the second straight year. McMullen was equally as impressive as a junior, earning All-Ohio honors with 87 tackles, 8.5 sacks and an impressive 31 quarterback pressures. He also lined up at tight end and had four receptions for 70 yards. McMullen earned second-team All-Ohio honors as a sophomore when he racked up 11.5 sacks. McMullen first broke onto the scene at Hoban as a freshman, when he had 12 sacks and earned honorable-mention All-Ohio accolades. McMullen was ranked among the top 200 players overall nationally by both Rivals.com and 247 Sports, and was also among the top 12 overall prospects in Ohio by both services. McMullen was also listed among the top dozen defensive end prospects nationally by both of those services. McMullen appeared in the Semper Fi Marines All-America Bowl following his senior season. McMullen only visited Nebraska, but he was highly recruited including scholarship offers from Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan State, Cincinnati and North Carolina State, among others.
