In a previous interview, Butler offensive line coach Cody Oates gave his thoughts on McClure.
"Once he gets his hands on people he's really good at finishing people," Oates said. "He plays very violent in the game and he really gets after the opponent and really tries to impose his will upon the defense. That's something we think is very important and he really done a good job in buying into that."
Oates couldn't recall McClure's weight room numbers but said strength isn't an issue.
"He's a big strong boy," Oates said. "I don't know if his numbers would reflect on how strong he plays He's just overall very strong, he's a big thick kid. He's built like a damn refrigerator. He's very explosive at the point of contact."
