2005 Outlook
Junior Grant Mulkey became a key receiver last season in Nebraska's West Coast Offense and should be a major part of the receiving corps again in 2005. Mulkey finished last season as Nebraska's fourth-leading receiver with 19 receptions. He will enter fall camp as a contender for playing time at the "Z" receiver spot and is also a leading contender for significant action as the Huskers' No. 1 "E" or third receiver. The 5-11, 180-pound Mulkey showed his toughness on several occasions last season, going across the middle to make catches in traffic.

A native of Arlington, Texas, Mulkey played in four games as a redshirt freshman in 2003, but did not have a catch. He redshirted in 2002.

2004 (Sophomore)
Mulkey played in all 11 games and was in the starting 11 when Nebraska opened in three-receiver sets against Western Illinois and Iowa State. He was fourth on the team with 19 receptions for 244 yards, a total that was also fourth on the team.

Mulkey opened the year with his first two career catches against Western Illinois, then had a season-high four catches for 43 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown against Southern Miss. Mulkey grabbed his second touchdown of the year on a 38-yard catch and run against Baylor, on a day when he had a career-best 75 receiving yards on three receptions.His 38-yard reception was the play that allowed Nebraska to surpass 300 yards passing for the first time in school history. Mulkey tied his season-high with four catches for 52 yards in the season finale with Colorado.

2003 (Redshirt Freshman)
Mulkey played in four games as a reserve wideout, but did not have a reception. He saw action against Southern Miss, Troy State, Texas A&M and Iowa State.

2002 (Redshirt)
A walk-on athlete, Mulkey redshirted his first season at Nebraska.

Before Nebraska (Arlington HS)
Mulkey came to Nebraska from Arlington (Texas) High School, where he was a standout for Coach Mickey Finley, the father of former Husker Clint Finley. Mulkey saw most of his action as a free safety on defense, but also played receiver. He had more than 50 tackles each of his three seasons, including 93 as a junior and 88 as a senior. Mulkey also intercepted five passes and totaled 300 receiving yards as a senior. He earned first-team all-district honors each of his last two seasons, and was a first-team all-area and second-team Class 5A all-state pick as a senior. Mulkey also played baseball as a senior and batted .434 to earn all-district honors at third base.
