ESPN’s Seth Greenberg believes the injury won’t impact his recruitment at all.
“This in no way will have any impact on his recruitment,” Greenberg, who previously Tweeted the news on Thursday, told SNY.tv by phone. “You’re talking about a guy with one of the most unique skill sets since LeBron James. And his skill set as much as his athleticism has defined his game.
“The programs that were recruiting him will no doubt continue to have him as their top priority, and next year at this time you expect him to be playing at a high level. His game is defined by his skill set, not just his athleticism. He injured his other knee a year ago and made a full recovery.”
Oak Hill coach Steve Smith was not available for comment.
