UCLA LB Kene Orjioke offers best recruiting advice

BY foxsports • August 13, 2015

Kene Orjioke went through an emotional roller coaster ride last year.

The 6-foot-4 linebacker said he felt "horrible" during a strenuous rehab process after tearing his ACL last September against Arizona State. It's been a tough road back, but Orjioke relied upon one bit of advice that resonated with him throughout his recovery.

"It's funny, because when you're getting recruited, they say, 'Go to a school that, if you ever get injured, you can see yourself being at,'" said Orjioke via the L.A. Daily News. "I definitely found one at UCLA."

And now, he's back with his teammates in San Bernardino. Jack Wang reports that "Orjioke is participating with his teammates again — albeit with a brace. He’s not sure when he’ll be able to take it off, but said that his first step feels as quick as it ever was."
