In the first half of a playoff game against Olentangy Orange High School, Ohio State's 2021 five-star defensive end commit Jack Sawyer suffered tore his MCL and will need surgery.

Initially, Pickerington North head coach Nathan Hillerich told Eleven Warriors they were hopeful it was just an MCL sprain, but an MRI revealed a tear.

Sawyer then took to twitter to address his injury:

According to the University of California San Francisco, it takes about eight weeks to recover from an MCL injury in which the ACL was not harmed, and that's the case with Sawyer.

Sawyer, of course, has all offseason to prepare for next football season, but the injury will likely impact his basketball season.
