McLean was undrafted out of Tusculum College, but made 51 appearances (5th-highest in school history) for Tusculum, with a 3.04 career ERA. In his final season at Tusculum, McLean was 3-1 with a 1.76 ERA/1.24 WHIP, and 29K:7BB in 30.2IP. More impressive was that, in the 31 hits he allowed for the 2009 Fightin' Tusculums (not their real name), only three of them were for extra-bases, and they were all doubles.
