Clemson Star Undergoes Knee Surgery
A Clemson star underwent knee surgery this past week.
Freshman linebacker Bryton Constantin has not had a great stint with the Tigers up to this point.
The high school star and four-star recruit from the 2019 class tore his ACL during his senior year of high school.
Despite this, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney decided to move forward with his recruitment of the youngster. It seemed to be a wise move until Constantin tore his ACL once again in the second week of the 2019 season.
The injury came roughly seven months after the initial ACL tear.
As a result of the injury, Constantin opted to redshirt in 2019 to give himself more time to recover.
Unfortunately, Constantin has suffered another setback.
ACL surgery next week. 3rd times a charm. #GodSpeed

According to his social media accounts, the talented prospect is set to undergo yet another surgery for his torn ACL. Constantin confirmed the news on Twitter on Thursday evening.
“ACL surgery next week,” he wrote. “3rd times a charm.”
Constantin has still not played a single down of regular season football for Clemson to date.
Coming into college Constantin was ranked as the eighth best outside linebacker available and the 170th best overall player available.
Standing at six-foot-two and upwards of 200 pounds, Constantin has all the physical attributes necessary for success at the next level. He just needs to put it altogether healthwise.
Will he be able to do it? Time will tell.
