McLennan (6’03”, 238 lbs.) will be heading north to the CFL for the first time in his career, after having played for the Super Bowl finalist Atlanta Falcons. The 23-year-old defensive end established himself as a prolific pass rusher during his days with the Washington State Cougars. In two seasons, he amassed a total of 63 tackles, and an impressive 10.5 sacks in 22 games. McLennan played an important role in the Cougars’ victory over the Miami Hurricanes, during the 2015 Sun Bowl, when he made four tackles, including a quarterback sack. The Hawthorne, CA native had two pass deflections, and one forced fumble during his time in Washington State. McLennan agreed to a two-year deal with the Alouettes.
