Tight end Mychael McClure has made great strides in the weight room his first two years in the Nebraska program, and this fall he will push for playing time at one of the Huskers' deepest positions. Since his arrival in the program, McClure has added more than 35 pounds of muscle to his 6-5 frame. A walk-on from Wisner, Neb., McClure has good receiving skills and the size and strength to provide a perimeter blocking presence.
