2016 Outlook
Sedrick King is among a group of young players on the defensive line who will be counted on to play a bigger role in the 2016 season. King has spent his first two seasons in the program adding strength to his 6-4 frame, now checking in at 250 pounds. He is positioned to battle for game action at defensive end this fall. The Huskers lost four starters on the defensive line following the 2015 season, including a pair of starting defensive ends.

King redshirted in his first season with the Huskers.

Before Nebraska (Plant City HS)
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 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.
