ACL four-peat ends WR Erskin's USF career


Last October, Colby Erskin suffered a torn ACL that ended his 2009 season, the third time in five years at South Florida the wide receiver had incurred an injury to the ligaments that stabilize a human’s knees.

After being granted a sixth year of eligibility because of the injuries, Erskin returned to the Bulls with the hope of contributing to a depleted USF receiving corps.

Unbelievably, though, those hopes were dashed by yet another knee getting shredded.

According to Greg Auman of the St. Petersburg Times, Erskin tore the ACL in his left knee during practice Saturday, effectively ending the star-crossed receiver’s collegiate career.  It was the third time Erskin had torn the ACL in his left knee; last year’s injury was to his right knee.

Erskin finishes his USF career with seven receptions and 86 yards.
