USC 2015 commitment DE Shamiek Blackshear of Bluffton injured his knee Friday night and will have an MRI on Tuesday. His coach, Ken Cribb, said the injury occurred without contact.

“He didn’t get hit, it was where he stepped,” Cribb said. “You can’t see it on film.”

Cribb was not willing to offer an opinion as to the severity of the injury.

“We have a great trainer and a great group of doctors and I leave it up to them, Cribb said. “I can only hope that it’s not serious.”

Clemson 2015 commitment DE Clelin Ferrell of Richmond, VA suffered a season ending knee injury in his opening game of the season two weeks ago.
