Penn State 2013 verbal commit Adam Breneman suffered a knee injury during a recent 7-on-7 practice, he told Lions247 on Thursday.
The severity of the injury is not known at this time, Breneman said. He's scheduled to have an MRI in the next day or so.
Here's his statement, according to Lions247, a well-regarded Penn State football website.
"Since the rumors are out I guess I'll make a statement. At our 7v7 today I did suffer a knee injury. We are unsure how minor or severe it is. Doctor Bixler said it could be very minor or it could be ACL. We should know in the next 24 hours after I get an MRI.'
Breneman, the top tight end prospect in the nation, has a four-star rating, according to Rivals.com.
