USC's Kenny Bigelow tears ACL, out for season

Tuesday July 8th, 2014

Former five-star football recruit and redshirt freshman Kenny Bigelow of USC has torn the ACL in his right knee and will be out for the season, the school's athletic department announced on Tuesday. The injury was suffered during a voluntary player workout.

Bigelow, a defensive lineman, was ranked the No. 6 player in the nation and No. 1 player at his position by Rivals in his 2013 high school class. 

He enrolled early at USC in spring 2013, but sat out last season due to his redshirt. He was expected to compete for a starting job in 2014, but Bigelow will now have to wait another year before making his debut for the Trojans.
