Prized UNC recruit Giovani Bernard tears ACL

Expected to contribute to North Carolina’s offense as a true freshman, Giovani Bernard will instead spend his first year in Chapel Hill rehabbing a fairly significant injury.

UNC announced Monday morning in a press release that the running back tore the ACL in his right knee. The release states that Bernard’s injury will require season-ending surgery and he will receive a medical redshirt for 2010.

The Ft. Lauderdale native was a four-star back out of St. Thomas Aquinas and rated as the 14th-best player at his position by Rivals.com.
