Bo Pelini, George O’Leary ‘Meet’ at Recruit’s Home

Pelini might have had a laugh about it. UCF counterpart George O’Leary, on the other hand, might have been a different story. For it was just the day before that onetime Knights commit and DE Sedrick King flipped his pledge to the Cornhuskers.
Brian Christopherson of the Lincoln Star Journal said it best when describing the recruiting process: “It’s the wild, wild west out there.”
