GAINESVILLE -- Florida Gators freshman receiver Andre Debose underwent surgery on Thursday to repair a torn hamstring tendon in his left leg, according to the University of Florida sports information department.
The surgery was performed at Shands Florida Surgical Center in Gainesville. According to UF, Debose is expected to make a full recovery in four to six months. Debose, who graduated from Sanford Seminole, was touted as the next Percy Harvin by Florida coach Urban Meyer but the freshman injured his leg last May while running track for his high school.
Debose will likely receive a medical redshirt this year, which will allow him to retain four years of eligibility.
