Huskers' Pelini adds talent from hometown

4/22/2012

Nebraska picked up its fifth commitment in the 2013 class, and it’s the second from Youngstown, Ohio – coach Bo Pelini’s hometown.

Cardinal Mooney (Youngstown, Ohio) outside linebacker Courtney Love committed to the Huskers, joining teammate Marcus McWilson in Nebraska’s 2013 class. Pelini is a graduate of Cardinal Mooney.

“I thought I would have a better opportunity at Nebraska, and I thought that I fit in right there,” Love told ESPN’s SoonerNation.com reporter Robert Przybylo via text. “I felt at home when I went down there. I felt like there was a genuine need for me. My family and I talked about it and they really liked it there. They like my decision.”

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Love helped lead Mooney to a state championship this past fall. Love and McWilson were a dominant tandem for the Mooney defense.

Ohio State, Oklahoma and USC were among Love's other offers.
