2014 Outlook
Sophomore Greg McMullen was among group of four defensive ends to see extensive playing time during the 2013 season. This season McMullen is expected to take on an expanded role. After an outstanding spring, the 6-3, 280-pound McMullen is the frontrunner to earn the starting end position opposite All-America candidate Randy Gregory.

McMullen has outstanding size and strength, allowing him to be effective against the run, while also having the ability to rush opposing passers. Only a sophomore, McMullen is also a key part of an 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 in 2013.

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.
