Bad news trickling out of Starkville this morning saying Will Redmond, Mississippi State’s star cornerback, tore his ACL in practice this week. Redmond is widely considered one of the best defensive backs in the country and he currently projects as a first or second round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Over the summer, ESPN’s Mel Kiper ranked Redmond the No. 1 senior cornerback in college football.
I haven’t seen any confirmation from Mississippi State, but this is terrible news for the Bulldogs and for Redmond’s future earnings, if true.
For Kentucky, it’s not the worst thing, although we’d never celebrate an injury to anyone.
