Clemson WR commit to have shoulder surgery

Clemson wide receiver commit Amari Rodgers, a four-star recruit in the Class of 2017, announced on Twitter that he will miss the better part of his senior season after undergoing surgery to repair a torn shoulder labrum suffered during a 7-on-7 tournament a few weeks ago.

Rodgers, who plays for Tennessee’s Knoxville Catholic High School, appears to be staying quite positive despite the circumstances. Shoulder injuries are no joke, so hopefully he doesn’t experience any complications with his.

The good news is that Rodgers has plenty of time to get healthy for his freshman season with the Tigers. Hopefully, he won’t have to take a redshirt for medical reasons.

And Clemson will be happy to have Rodgers aboard once he’s enrolled in classes. The 2017 season could prove to be a transitionary one, as star quarterback Deshaun Watson is expected to be NFL-bound after 2016, so having as many offensive weapons as possible could wind up being essential.

Stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on Rodgers’ recovery!
