Three-star offensive lineman and Kansas commit, Zach Bolton, suffered a disappointing end to his season last week. Bolton, from Klein Forest High School in Texas, tore the ACL in his right knee during the first quarter of the Klein Forest versus Westfield game last Thursday night. Klein Forest lost the game to Westfield on a 4th quarter drive led by Kansas quarterback commit, Jacoby Walker.
Bolton is now out for the remainder of the season. He will have surgery on his knee, and will immediately start the rehabilitation process after that.
“Yep, I tore it,” Bolton said. “I’m doing good,” added Bolton.
It appears the surgery will happen very soon.
“The surgery is very soon,” said Bolton. “Like Monday,” he added.
Bolton also stated that the Kansas coaching staff has already been in contact with him to show their support and it appears that Bolton has plans to make his way back to Lawrence this season. As of right now Bolton is unsure of when that trip will happen.
Westfield quarterback, Jacoby Walker, recalls the injury to Bolton and certainly feels sympathy for his future Kansas teammate.
“Yes, I saw it,” Walker said. “He told me yesterday. That’s a bummer,” added Walker.
Kansas recruit and Walker’s Westfield teammate, Aaron Harris, also recalls the injury to Bolton during the game.
“Yeah, I was in during the play and I was lined up on him all game until he got hurt,” said Harris. “One of my teammates hit him when he caught an interception, and he fell and got hurt,” Harris said.
