After a torn ACL in his senior season of high school forced him to miss all of the action, Ohio State wide receiver Kamryn Babb is out again, this time due to another torn ACL in his opposite knee.
Parris Campbell said Ohio State true freshman wide receiver Kamryn Babbs torn ACL happened during a team workout a couple months ago. Campbell said the other wide receivers have tried to rally around him to keep his spirits up.— Dan Hope (@Dan_Hope) July 24, 2018
A four-star and the #73 overall player in the 2018 class out of Christian Brothers HS in St. Louis, Babb was one of the crown jewels in Ohio State's elite 2018 group, coming in at the wide receiver position along with L'Christian "Blue" Smith and high school teammate Cameron Brown.
Unfortunately, Babb will not have the opportunity to make an impact this season barring an unforeseen comeback. If there's a silver lining, it's that Ohio State is absolutely loaded at the wide receiver position after returning its entire two-deep from last season, which gives Babb time to recover before he can make a real impact on the field.
The news was first reported by Lettermen Row's Austin Ward.
