Four-star defensive end Jordan Sherit (Tampa, Fla./Hillsborough) is out for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL, according to his head coach Earl Garcia.

“No one hit him or landed on his leg,” Garcia said. “Jordan was just running down the field. It was a freak accident with no contact whatsoever. An ACL injury usually happens with someone falling on you. That was not the case here. It was nothing. I guess it was just an act of God.”

Sherit had a great career for Hillsborough, starting since his freshman season and in 31-consecutive games. He actually had an ankle injury and missed his first start. But then injured his knee late in their loss to Tampa Jefferson last week.

“Up until the injury Jordan was Jordan and playing great at tight end, defensive end and long snapping for us,” Garcia said. “But it’s a loss for us because he’s a three-year starter with a 5.7 GPA and a high character kid. It’s a huge loss and we were playing well. But it’s football and we have to move on.”

Garcia also said that Sherit will likely have ACL surgery in about two weeks.

Sherit, 6-foot-4 and 243-pounds, has committed to the University of Florida. He’s the No. 23 ranked defensive end in the nation.
