Terry confirms extent of injury

Georgia wide receiver commitment Tramel Terry tweeted Monday that tests performed Monday confirmed that -- as expected -- he did suffer a torn ACL during Saturday's Shrine Bowl.

Terry was hurt early in the game and carted off with ice on his left knee.

He indicated that he does not yet have the full results from an MRI and will have those later in the week.

By all accounts, he is still planning to enroll early at UGA and said via Twitter that he will work hard with current UGA receiver Michael Bennett, who is also recovering from a torn ACL.

WCIV in Charleston is quoting Terry's high school coach as saying Terry will ultimately have surgery in Athens.

The recovery from this type of injury typically takes a minimum of nine months, but Terry is optimistic in the timeframe for his recovery.

"(I) will be back in May or June," Terry tweeted.

A long-time UGA commit, Terry is rated as the No. 1 prospect in South Carolina for the 2013 class and the nation's No. 97 overall prospect.
