Defensive end Josh Sweat, ESPN's No. 1 recruit in the country and No. 5 overall recruit by Rivals.com from the Class of 2015, is done for the season after dislocating his left knee, according to ESPN.

The injury occurred during Sweat's game last Friday. His mother told ESPN that he is going to have surgery on his knee.

Sweat holds offers from dozens of schools, including Florida State, Oregon, Alabama, Ohio State, Auburn and Michigan State

"All of the colleges are aware of his injury," Carlette Sweat said. "Nothing has changed. He may have to change his visit schedule because of surgery."

The 6-foot-5, 240-pounder already visited Ohio State but missed his planned visit at Virginia Tech last weekend because of the injury. His mother said he might have to reschedule a planned visit to Georgia, but his October visits to Florida State and Oregon remain unchanged. 

Sweat plans to enroll in the spring at whichever school he decides to commit to.
