Freshman Terrence Ross has torn ACL

It is nearly impossible for a team to make it through an entire football camp and not have any injuries. The Cards learned of a big one yesterday to a talented freshman. Safety Terrence Ross posted this picture on his Instagram account, confirming that he has a torn ACL.

Ross is 6’1 186 lbs from Apopka, Florida. As a senior in high school, he played in the FACA (Florida Athletic Coaches Association) North-South All Star game. He was named MVP of the North team in that game. (Richard Benjamin, another incoming UofL freshman, was MVP of the South)

Football: Cards pick up big committment from Tampa, FL WR/DB

Richard Benjamin 2

By Justin Renck:

Richard Benjamin, a 6’1 wide receiver/defensive back from Tampa, Florida, verbally committed to the Cards last week, but it wasn’t quite official. Anyone can commit to a school, but the coaching staff has to approve and accept it before it becomes official.
