Default UM's Eric Winston will miss the rest of the year

Quote:
Replays showed Winston was hurt when it appeared a Georgia Tech defender's helmet smacked into Winston's left knee, after which quarterback Kyle Wright fell into his lineman. Winston might have a torn anterior cruciate ligament or even more extensive damage. Winston's knee was stabilized in an air cast and he was carted off Grant Field.
He was going to be one of the first offensive lineman taken if he came out this year...

Not anymore. His stock is dropping faster than...hmmmm... , faster than Clinton's pants in the Oval Office.

Luckily hes only a junior so he'll atleast have his senior season, but he will probably petition the NCAA for another year of eligibility if he wants it.

Oh I have no doubt he would have come out his year, he would have been a first rounder but that aint happening now.

I just read this guy's profile over on hpf
despite how awful this injury is, if it gives us a better shot at him next year, it might be better for everybody involved
if anyone can come back stronger, the Neanderthal can
does anyone know his weight when he commited at Miami?

He was around 260 coming out of high school and was projected as the top TE in the country. He even started his career at Miami as a TE before being moved to LT (smart move on both parts).

he was 260 when he got to miami and had trouble keeping his weight under 280 so they decided to move him to LT. Now he is 320 and they say he can still run a 4.8, but i don't know about that 4.95 more like it
