The Georgia football program will lose some depth under center ahead of the upcoming season. According to reports, quarterback D’Wan Mathis will be sidelined after undergoing a brain operation. The surgery took place last Thursday.
Mathis remains under medical supervision but has since been released from the hospital.
“One more day, and it could have burst,” Terence Mathis, D’Wan’s father, said in a statement to 247 Sports. “I can’t tell you how thankful I am my son is at the University of Georgia and with that medical and training staff. “We were 745 miles away when all this happened last week, and Coach (Kirby) Smart made sure my son was taken care of the same way he would treat his own children.”
D’Wan added: “Dawg Nation I’m good thanks for checking on me I’ll be back sooner than ever and better never question gods timing! Major set back for a major comeback 💯and to my teammates keep working I can’t wait to play football again.”
We wish D’Wan the best in his recovery and hope that he can quickly return to 100 percent.
D’Wan, a standout at Oak Park High School in Belleville, Michigan, was the No. 11 ranked pro-style quarterback and the No. 9 prospect in the state of Michigan.
