Then he saw a game in Memorial Stadium.
“I never expected to be blown away the way I was,” said the 6-foot-5, 215-pound native of Orrville, Ohio.
“Walking out from the locker room to the field, I had 8- and 9-year-old kids giving me hugs. People knew my name.”
Previously committed to Indiana, Pirman becomes Nebraska’s 17th commitment of the 2011 class. John Papuchis was his lead recruiter.
He said his decision to change his commitment in favor of Nebraska was not made lightly.
“I’m not one to let people down,” Pirman said. “It was one of the toughest decisions I ever had to make.”
But the day after seeing the passion for Nebraska football in person, he knew he wanted to be a Husker.
“On Sunday morning, it really hit me, my heart was somewhere else,” Pirman said.
