. “It is not the same knee he injured in high school (also a torn ACL). He will rehab and be ready to go in the summer. He is a hard worker and I know will be ready for next year.

“We plan to apply for a medical hardship to get the year back. We realize it will take a special waiver to have that granted by the NCAA.”
