His former high school coach touts McClure's strength as his work-ethic.
"He's got a lot of potential," Adamsville (AL) Minor Head Coach Tony Lunsford said. "He's not a diamond in the rough because he's already a diamond. He's a great kid and he'll do whatever it takes."
Defensive coordinator Mickey Andrews feels McClure has it in him to contribute early.
"I wouldn't be surprised at all to see him play a lot this fall," Andrews said.
As a senior in high school he recorded 49 tackles, one INT and three forced fumbles. The Alabama standout also returned three punts for scores and he had one blocked field goal. On offense, he rushed for 265 yards on 12 carries and had three touchdowns.
As a junior at the Auburn Nike Camp, McClure ran a 4.54 40-yard dash time and he benched 185 pounds 23 times. He also ran a 4.44 shuttle with a 30.7 vertical leap.
