ACL injuries can take up to a year to heal from. it all depends on the severity of the injury, but i hope those offers stand. It's unlikely he'll play for Manual this year, which will hurt them quite a bit.

I'm not a doctor. I am wondering if this will prevent Bradley from looking at him as a potential recruit. How long does this usually take to get back on the court?

well, of course not all injuries are the same nor the same severity, but if he has an injury to the ACL that requires surgery - which apparently is the case here, the earliest guys get back is 6 months, but as Deadguy said - if can take a full year & many players who come back from an ACL reconstruction are never quite the same, nor explosive, nor have the moves they did before.

Will Egolf lost two entire seasons to ACL tears but thankfully very few Bradley men's basketball players have suffered this injury..
One guy I recall getting back even earlier than 6 months was Kansas' Brandon Rush.
He underwent surgery for ACL reconstruction in early June of his junior season and was on the court playing again on November 15, just five months later.

Trevian Bell commits to Green Bay & Trae Berhow narrows his list & excludes Bradley -
and several players have also narrowed their lists, like Jordan Goodwin, Derek Culver, and others like Hunter, Dort, Hauser...who appear to be considering only the power conference offers, so I likewise trimmed them....
so our list gets a little simpler..



2017
Damir Hadzic - Bradley has reportedly offered, talented 6-9 forward - also holds offer from FGCU
Nana Akenten - just recently offered for 2017 - getting BCS offers
Marcus Santos-Silva - just recently offered for 2017

nope, no reason other than just forgot to add him -- he's mentioned earlier in this thread & elsewhere - our coaching staff sent someone all the way to Australia to check this guy & others out then bring back the scouting report and make the offer!

BUT - he just trimmed his list and BRADLEY makes the cut with all those big boys...
I am not a big fan of kids who make a huge issue when they trim to SIXTEEN SCHOOLS
but I am excited to see that he still has Bradley among his choices!!
