Before Nebraska
Defensive end prospect Sedrick King was one of the final players to join the Huskers' 2014 signing class, committing to Nebraska in late January. The 6-4, 250-pound King was one of three signees from Florida, marking the most signees Nebraska has ever had from the Florida high school ranks. King emerged during his senior season at Plant City High School for Coach Wayne Ward. King exhibited great speed off the edge and finished the season with 50 tackles, including 11 tackles for loss and six sacks. He had an impressive 30 quarterback hurries, along with two interceptions and two fumble recoveries, helping his team to an 8-3 record and a trip to the Class 7A state playoffs. King began his junior season splitting time between safety and linebacker before settling into a spot in the front seven. He made 35 tackles as a junior, including five sacks. King also saw action on the Plant City varsity as a sophomore, posting eight tackles and a sack for a 7-3 team. King was regarded as one of the top 65 defensive ends in the nation according to the 247 Sports composite rankings. King also visited Central Florida before choosing the Huskers, and had offers from Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Louisville, Marshall, Memphis, South Florida, Rutgers, Wake Forest and West Virginia. King is the son of Kita and Sedrick King Sr., and he was born on May 27, 1996.
