Torii Hunter Jr. (yes, son of the Torii Hunter) is a 2013 verbal commitment (wide receiver) to the University of Notre Dame. Earlier this week, while practicing for the Under Armour All-America Bowl, a freak injury occurred and he broke his leg. The injury was caught on tape:
While the injury is pretty bad, it was a clean break and Torii Jr. has remained pretty upbeat about it. Today he said “Man they just put a rod and screws in it — easy fix” and tweeted out a x-ray of the broken femur:

He has also had the support of several members of his recruiting class, the famed “IrishMob13”, who showed up to visit him in the hospital:
