Corey Bullock is the premier offensive lineman on the best offensive line in HBCU football through the season’s first half. Bullock plays his best at guard, but continues to show the versatility to play all over the North Carolina Central front. He’s earned two MEAC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors already this season.

Bullock’s career began in 2019. He did not have a sophomore season until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the 2020 season.
