Max Bullough led the Spartans in tackles the last two seasons, with a career-high 111 total tackles as a junior in 2012. He is a classic Mike linebacker that is the heart of the Spartans attack going into 2013. 

He has been named to preseason watch lists for the Butkus, Lombardi, Nagurski, Bednarik and Lott awards. With his size (6-3, 245), ability and football IQ, Bullough may be one of the top LBs selected in 2014.
