WOW- What a tough blow

My friends from Florida raved about this kid- Said he is going to make an immediate impact on our program. I would say they are correct.

Anybody heard any more word on exactly what the injury is? Lots of different foot injuries. At least it's not another torn knee, but some foot injuries can be about as bad.

Love how these injuries come after the window for medical redshirts. Unlucky for both the player/team and the fans.
