Texas commit Keivon Ramsey suffers torn ACL
The Judson HS defensive back hurt his knee during 'Under The Lights', and will miss his senior season in order to recuperate.
Lost among the positive reports concerning the success of Strong's 'Under The Lights' camp was a bit of bad news; three-star safety and Longhorn commit Keivon Ramsey injured his knee during drills, as reported by OrangeBloods' Jason Suchomel. In interviews after the camp, Ramsey maintained that the extent of his injury was unknown. On Tuesday, however, the worst fears of many were realized.

If Ramsey's rehabilitation and recovery go according to schedule, he would theoretically be ready to play football again by the time he graduates - standard ACL rehab usually takes 7 to 9 months. However delays are common during the recovery process, and it should not be taken for granted that Ramsey's athleticism will completely return - whether it does or not will depend on a variety of medical factors, including the extent of the tear and the stability of his knee following the initial surgery.
In the meantime, all of us from BON wish him a speedy recovery.
Texas has dealt with such incidents in the past - former safety Kenny Vaccaro suffered a similar injury during his senior year of high school. Vaccaro was able to recover quickly (without a medical redshirt, no less) and quickly became a dependable contributor on defense and special teams his freshman year.
