An MRI has confirmed the worst fears about 2013 blue-chip Penn State football recruit Adam Breneman's knee injury.
Breneman and his family confirmed with several media outlets on Friday that he sustained a clear tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while landing after catching a pass during 7-on-7 competition at Cedar Cliff High School on Thursday.
The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Breneman, who caught 72 passes for 1,120 yards and 12 touchdowns as a junior and is the consensus No. 1-ranked tight end in the 2013 class, will miss his entire senior season.
"When I came down I heard something snap in my knee,'' Breneman said to the Patriot-News of Harrisburg. "I knew I had done something because I hadn't felt anything like it before.''
Breneman also told his local newspaper that Penn State team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli will perform his surgery and he'll be working on his rehab with the university's staff as much as NCAA regulations permit.
Another change as a result of the injury, according his interview with the Patriot-News, is that Breneman will explore enrolling early at Penn State.
"I'm not going to pout about it,'' Breneman said. "I'll make the most of it and come back better than ever."
