Owls' offensive line coach Ronnie Vinklarek on the day he thought he scored a major recruiting coup
"I was at UH working for John Jenkins and I was recruiting ND Kalu. We were coming down the stretch to to signing day and I get a call from ND. He tells me that he's coming to Houston. I hung up quick and went to tell the other coaches about it. I was fired up that we had him. The next day, his high school coach called me and said in my excitement, I didn't hear the whole conversation. ND was coming to Houston, no doubt, but he was coming here to play for Rice. It's a lot funnier to tell now than it was at the time."
