USF Loses WR A.J. Love to Torn ACL

USF senior wide receiver A.J. Love tore the ACL in his right knee during the USF Spring Game, school officials confirmed Monday evening.

The injury occurred when Love caught a pass from B.J. Daniels, and was tackled with less than five minutes to play. Love had 3 catches for 59 yards Saturday, including a 32-yard touchdown pass from Daniels in the first half.

The senior Bulls receiver has 19 career starts, 970 career receiving yard and seven scores, and was projected to be a starter this season.

This is the second major knee injury for Love who tore the ACL in his left knee during the St. Petersburg Bowl in 2008, keeping him out of workouts until fall training camp of the 2009 season. He was able to return from that injury, and caught 26 passes for 489 yards and four touchdowns, including a single game high of 121 yards against Louisville last season. His 26 catches ranked second on the team in ‘09 and his 18.8 yards per catch was the third best single season mark in USF history.
