In 2018, McClain played in every game as a reserve wide receiver. As a redshirt freshman (2017), he caught a 37-yard pass against Georgia and a 10- yard pass against the UCF Knights in the Peach Bowl. McClain is a speedy receiver with excellent hands. He attended Crestview High School and was ranked a top 75 receiver by Scout, Rivals, and 247 Sports. McClain also lettered in sprints and jumps.

Ulric Jones is a 6'7 powerhouse. As a fifth year senior at the University of South Carolina, he played in all 13 games and is credited for 29 tackles including a sack, two passes defended and one tackle for a loss. After college, Jones spent some time with NFL teams including the Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers.
