"Josh has been a great guy," Pullard said. "He has great character. I've never known him to lie about anything ... so it's surprising. This is exactly when our leadership roles come in. We talk to guys and let them know what's expected, and we'll keep us focused on our team."
"It's been a great transition," USC linebacker Hayes Pullard said. "Pendergast brings that swagger that's been great for us. They simplified this defense for us guys to go out there and just play fast and play to the best of our ability."
