Freshman linebacker Bryton Constantin has had horrible injury luck since his arrival to Clemson.
Constantin – a former 4-star recruit in the 2019 class – tore his ACL during his senior year of high school. Dabo Swinney and the Tigers still took a chance on the talented prospect. But Constantin re-tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2019 season – just seven months after the initial tear.
Considering the two devastating injuries, Swinney and Constantin decided to use the 2019 season as a redshirt year. Unfortunately, the talented linebacker prospect has suffered another major setback.
Constantin is set to undergo yet another surgery for the torn ACL he suffered last September. The Clemson linebacker confirmed the surgery news himself, via his personal Twitter, this past Thursday evening. Constantin’s tweet can be found below:
ACL surgery next week. 3rd times a charm. #GodSpeed

The Baton Rouge prospect has yet to play a down for the Tigers. It’s currently unclear as to Constantin’s timeline for a return from injury.
The 4-star LB rated as the No. 8 OLB and No. 170 overall prospect as apart of the Tigers’ 2019 recruiting class, according to 247Sports. When healthy, the 6-foot-2, 207-pound linebacker is expected to be a big-time contributor for the Clemson defense.
For now, Constantin will once again start the process of rehabbing from yet another surgery.
