Brandon Ashley injured his knee during a game in recent days but a source close to the five-star power forward said the injury is not expected to be serious and that two doctors don't believe it's a ligament tear.
Ashley, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound prospect from Oakland (Calif.) Bishop O'Dowd, had an MRI done on Friday. Rivals.com rates Ashley as the second-best power forward and sixth-best player in the 2012 class.
Ashley said in a text message Friday afternoon that he hasn't received the MRI results yet.
"He hyper-extended it a little bit in the game the other day," the source said. "They won't know until the MRI. We don't think it's serious. He got it checked by two doctors and without X-rays they don't think it's an ACL."
The source was not at the Bishop O'Dowd game but heard that Ashley landed awkwardly after dunking the ball.
"I wasn't there," the source said. "I heard he was going for a dunk. I think he landed funny coming down from a dunk."
Arizona, Cal, Kentucky, Oregon, Stanford, UCLA and Washington are only a few of the schools involved with Ashley, who's talented enough to basically pick whichever college he'd like to play for.
Playing with the Oakland Soldiers, Ashley was arguably one of the top two players on the championship team at the Las Vegas Fab 48 this summer.
