Christian Mahogany is a star guard at Boston College, touted by ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. as the No. 2 guard prospect for the 2023 NFL draft.
Unfortunately, it seems that his career is going to take a slight detour, as Mahogany told ESPN in a phone interview on Thursday that he tore his ACL.
The injury occurred while he was working out at home in New Jersey, and Mahogany underwent ACL repair surgery on May 27. The surgery was performed by New York Giants team physician Dr. Scott Rodeo.
While no timeline for his return has been set, recovery appears to be going well. Still, Mahogany believes he will miss the entire 2022 season.
“I think I’m probably going to come back because it’s hard [after an injury],” he said. “I’m going to leave no doubt on my college career. Especially after an injury like this, I’m going to prove that I can still do it.”
Full recovery from ACL repair surgery generally takes 6-9 months. As a 6-foot-3, 335-pound giant, he should definitely take his time to make sure he’s fully healed.
