Tatum has Surgery; Cancels Michigan Visit
It was a game against another L.A. powerhouse that forced Tatum into surgery today to repair a torn ACL tendon. The No. 4 linebacker in the country according to Scout.com injured his knee during the kickoff of McClymonds game against Dorsey on Sept. 30. After the game, Tatum told Scout.com analyst Scott Schrader that he heard a "pop" in his knee. The worst fear was confirmed when it turned out to be the ACL.
The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Tatum was set to visit Michigan this weekend. That trip has been cancelled, and it is not yet been rescheduled. "He obviously couldn't make the trip this weekend," Carter said. "Right now he's looking to visit Miami on Nov. 18, USC on Dec. 2, and Cal on Dec. 10. Those visit are far enough off that he can still keep them. Coach Carr and Coach English called from Michigan, and they are looking to reschedule their visit, but it hasn't been set yet. Joshua may go ahead and decide on a school soon, but I'm not sure what he's going to do."
Carter said his star linebacker would probably be back at full-strength sometime this spring. This is the second season-ending injury for the young man. He sat out last season at St. Mary's High in Berkeley because of a shoulder injury, and then transferred to McCLymonds for his senior season.
