Clive Walford left the Pittsburgh game with a right knee injury on Saturday and the school released a statement on his status this afternoon.
“Clive Walford sustained a right knee injury on Saturday during the Pittsburgh game. He will have surgery on Wednesday at the University of Miami Hospital by Dr. Lee Kaplan.”
Walford, a senior from Glades Central High in Belle Glade, finished the 2014 regular season with a team-high 44 catches for 676 yards and seven touchdowns.
One of three finalists for the John Mackey Award, given annually to the best tight end in college football, Walford is ranked as the No. 2 tight end prospect for the upcoming NFL Draft behind Notre Dame's Ben Koyack. They're both expected to be selected in the 2nd or 3rd round.
