UGA got some bad recruiting news on Saturday.
Tramel Terry, one of the team’s top commitments for 2013, suffered a serious knee injury on the first play of Saturday’s Shrine Bowl all-star game between the top high school football players in South Carolina and North Carolina.
Terry, the RB-WR from Goose Creek (S.C.) High School, may have torn his ACL, according to ESPN’s Miller Safrit.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Terry is an early high school graduate and will enroll at UGA next month, but his status for spring practice is unknown due to rehabilitation from the injury. Terry was expected to contribute immediately as a backup running back and slot wide receiver.
It was heart-breaking news for Terry, who had twice committed to UGA and decided a few weeks ago that he would go ahead and stick with the Bulldogs rather than to flip to Clemson. Terry was named as South Carolina’s Mr. Football.
