Jared Pinkney was a player leading up to the dead period that was really picking up steam. The 6-foot-5 and 255-pound Pinkney took an official visit to Nebraska the weekend of Thanksgiving for the Minnesota game.
Pinkney enjoyed the visit to Nebraska that weekend despite the fact that the Huskers lost. Then Nebraska fired head coach Bo Pelini and some things feel through the cracks during recruiting with the non-committed players. Pinkney never heard from Nebraska after that day.
"No sir," Pinkney said. "I haven't heard from anyone at Nebraska since the coaching changes. I didn't try to reach out to them."
It's a new day in Lincoln with a new head coach. As of right now though Pinkney says that he doesn't have any interest in the Huskers anymore. More than that he says that he currently has a top three schools.
