OL Brad McNulty 6'3" 300 Allen (TX) (***)
McNulty was a three-year starter on the offensive line for Coach Tom Westerberg's tradition-rich Texas high school program.
Playing primarily at offensive guard, McNulty was named 1st-Team Class 5A All-State, in 2010, after a senior season in which he registered 46 pancake blocks, as he helped lead his team as a captain to its third-straight district championship. As a junior in 2009, McNulty recorded 56 pancake blocks, after registering 41 pancakes as a sophomore, when his team won the Class 5A Div. I state championship.
Brad and his parents, Bill and Cathy McNulty, were impressed with Missouri, and he chose Mizzou over Vanderbilt, Nebraska, Houston, Tulsa and Memphis, among others.
McNulty, who enjoys playing video games, working out, going to movies, and reading, is planning to study psychology, sociology, or international studies at Missouri.
"On film, (McNulty) looks like he plays really hard," said Coach Josh Henson. "He's one of those guys that's trying to finish all of the time, you know, driving his feet until the whistle.......................... I think he had a better senior year than a junior year. He was kind of a late bloomer."
"He was a three-year starter at Allen, (TX)," said Coach Bruce Walker, who was the primary recruiter for Brad McNulty. "If you know about that school, they produce a lot of players. Being a three-year starter there, especially on the offensive line, is something pretty special. The thing that stuck out to me with Brad, is that he's one tough son of a gun. He's also a great technician........................ He's a no-nonsense, bring your lunch bucket, go to work, and if you get in my way, I'm going to kick your butt, kind of a guy."
JP's Take – Brad McNulty continues the trend of the Tigers looking for tough,physical, hard-nosed offensive linemen that like to battle, mix it up and play with an aggressive attitude in finishing plays. I am really impresses with McNulty's motor and run blocking abilities on tape. He also displays good strength and mobility. He keeps his feet churning on run plays and he pass protects well. Plays with a nasty streak.
Greg's Take - McNulty has gained a reputation as a tough-minded and physical run blocker. And, that reputation appears to be well-earned. He already has the size to play at this level, and has played at about as high of a level of competition as there is in high school. McNulty will play on the inside at Missouri, probably at guard, although Coach Yost said that they'd "check him out at center".
