Kentucky signee Jordan Bonner was stabbed six times last weekend in his hometown of Euclid, Ohio, reports Fox 8 in Cleveland.
Bonner, a junior defensive end, sustained stab wounds to the chest, abdomen and back. He is reportedly recovering well, and was released from the hospital after four days.
“This sets me back a little because I need to finish my classes and I can’t go back until I get the staples out next week,” Bonner told Fox 8.
Aristotle Lewis was arrested and charged with the assault. He pleaded not guilty and was released on bond.
Bonner, a three-star recruit according to Scout.com, committed to Kentucky in February after playing for junior college Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. He chose the Wildcats over Tennessee, Nebraska, Louisville, Virginia Tech, New Mexico and Memphis, among others.
