Mike McGlinchey (68)
The 6’8”, 300-pound sophomore has been locked in at right tackle with the first-team offense throughout the spring. There’s no doubting the raw ability is there, but how will McGlinchey look going up against the likes of Ishaq Williams and Romeo Okwara, among others?
Mike Denbrock had good things to say about McGlinchey when we spoke to the new offensive coordinator a few weeks ago.
“When grows up, when the light comes on and he gets it, he’s gonna be an incredible football player from the standpoint that I think the physical gifts that he possesses as far as his athletic ability, obviously his size is hard to miss,” Denbrock said. “But with that, he’s got some football intelligence that can be cultivated and can grow rather quickly and that puts us in a position, obviously, to get him on the field right away.
“And we’ve kind of thrown him to the wolves here in the spring and let him kind of fight through it. And he’s done a really nice job so far.”
