Ringo: Nick Kasa Partially Tears MCL


Kyle Ringo of the BDC reports that freshman DE Nick Kasa has a partially torn MCL which may require surgey and could lead to a redshirt year. Best case scenario is probably 6 weeks and worse case is the probably wasting a year of Kasa's eligibility if he doesn't return until mid Big 12 play. If he can't play by the Texas game, I would hope they redshirt him considering he probably wouldn't pay dividends right away. Kasa, the 6'7" defensive end from Colorado, was expected to compete for playing time as a true freshman and provide a pass rush that has been missing the pass few years. Tough news as once again a top recruit who is expected to contribute in the early season is injured.
