Georgia Bulldogs recruit Tramel Terry tore his ACL in Saturday's Shrine Bowl All-Star game, according to Seth Emerson of The Telegraph.

Terry, a wide receiver, was injured on the opening kickoff of the game, which pits the best high school players from North and South Carolina against each other.

Terry, of Goose Creek, S.C., wrote on Twitter that he is going to have surgery in Athens this week.

With the injury, the Bulldogs are likely to redshirt Terry for his freshman season. Terry planned on enrolling early, according to the Telegraph, but now won't be able to participate in spring practices because of the injury.

Terry "had a chance to play right away," Emerson wrote, especially with Marlon Brown and Tavarres King set to graduate in the spring. The Bulldogs will return Malcolm Mitchell, Chris Conley and Rantavious Wooten to the wide receiving core.

The Bulldogs will also have recruits Justin Scott-Wesley and Rhett McGown figure into wide receiver depth, Emerson said.
