George Farmer has once again injured himself, this time in wide receiver drills. It seemed like George Farmer's body was finally beginning to catch up with his talent as he had his most productive spring since he has arrived at USC. Now he has suffered another setback when he he caught a ball in a non-contact drill and fell grasping his knee.
This is yet another injury to the wide receiver out of Gardena Serra who was supposed to possess so much talent. In his two years at USC he has accomplished nothing, and time is running out for the once heralded receiver. This must be frustrating to USC fans because he has so much potential and they have heard all this hype surrounding him for two years now, but it has amounted to nothing. This must be even more frustrating to George himself who came in to USC with praise and huge expectations. He was fighting for the number three spot because of the breakout spring by true sophomore Nelson Agholor who made the most of his playtime as a freshmen and will likely start with Marqise Lee. Now he will likely fall further in the depth chart because senior De'Von Flournoy, sophomore Victor Blackwell, and freshmen Darreus Rodgers are competing for the same spot and none of them lack the talent to be a star in that position.
George Farmer is scheduled for an MRI today, April 3rd, and all we can do is hope for the best. This is also another injury for the USC team who has been plagued with injuries this spring, and about 18 players sat out of practice Tuesday. I really hope Farmer can get back up but it seems whenever he starts to thrive he gets injured, and I fear this tendency will follow him for the rest of his career. George Farmer is no longer a freshmen who can catch up in three years, no he had his two years to catch up so this could be his last.
News came in that George Farmer tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee. In a few weeks he will have surgery, but he will be out for the 2013 season. George is eligible for redshirt so he will have two years of college football left.
