The top receiver in the country went to an all-star game in San Antonio looking to turn some heads, but this isn't what he had in mind.
Fred Rouse, Rivals.com's No. 1 wide receiver and No. 4 overall prospect, had a scare Monday as he was injured during practice for Saturday's game.
The Tallahassee (Fla.) Linclon receiver injured his right leg and reportedly had to be carried off the field, unable to put any weight on that right leg.
"I just got off the phone with Fred," Lincoln head coach David Wilson told Warchant.com. "He says it isn't that serious. It's a sprained (right) ankle and he is day-to-day. They are taking x-rays as a precaution. There is some swelling."
Rouse was unsure if he would be ready to play in Saturday's game. He felt that the artificial turf he was practicing on contributed to the injury.
"He said he isn't used to running on turf," Wilson said. "Also, his feet are narrow and they gave him some new shoes that he's still getting used to."
Rouse has said his final four schools are Alabama, Texas, Miami and Florida State. He will likely wait until signing day to announce where he will play his college ball.
