Georgia Defensive Back Tweets He's Torn His ACL

Freshman defensive back Divaad Wilson, who signed with Georgia in December and enrolled in January, has been off to a great start to his collegiate career, receiving multiple compliments from head coach Kirby Smart. Unfortunately though, Wilson’s career may be on hold for one more season, as the former 4-star recruit tweeted on Saturday that he has torn his ACL.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, Wilson wrote: “Tore my ACL [on Saturday] … Comeback will be Epic! God’s Plan.”

Smart spoke on the injury following practice, but that was before Wilson received a diagnosis. Smart was clearly feeling for Wilson at the time.

“That’s disheartening, because he had had three really good practices, and I was really fired up about him,” Smart said.

Wilson came to Athens as a 4-star defensive back out of Miami, Florida, where he was teammates with fellow signee, 4-star running back James Cook. Wilson’s absence is a big blow to Georgia’s secondary, but the Bulldogs will have plenty of time to find a new contributor.

We wish Wilson the best in his recovery.
