Anybody know the severity of it? From what I heard he was carted off the field. I hope he will be ok!! Wishing him a speedy and full recovery!
Okay, not to sound insensitive, but this raises a question for me. How do the coaches handle a situation like this if it were to be a very serious injury? I'm assuming we'd have no choice but to rescind the scholarship offer. Does anyone know if this has happened before? Needless to say, I hope that is not the case here and that Aaryn will be just fine and a future star for NU!
Not to be rude......but most of the time in this day and age, knee injuries are going to happen and players are going to still be able to have a productive and in some cases normal career.
With this said, he probably wouldn't come in at NU and start right away so he could redshirt. This in all actuality gives this guy 2 solid years to focus on school, rehab, gain his mental confidence back and better yet, learn the defense before he ever even gets on the field for real. I'd stand by our offer and take advantage of it..........as much as one can with a injury.
Great news is that Rick Shaw of Huskers Illustrated talked with Aaryn tonight and Aaryn says he expects to be back in a couple games or so as it turned out to be no more than a sprain to his left knee! Great news and wishing the kid a speedy recovery! Maybe a steal in this recruiting class in my mind from what all I have read!
