WAHOO'S TOP RECEIVER INJURED

Kevin Ogletree, Virginia's top wide receiver, suffered a serious knee injury and is expected to miss the 2007 season. Ogletree tore an anterior cruciate ligament in practice Friday and will require surgery, coach Al Groh said on Wednesday. Ogletree ranked third in receptions in the Atlantic Coast Conference last season as a sophomore, catching 52 passes for 582 yards and four touchdowns. He played as a true freshman in 2005, so Ogletree can redshirt this season and return in 2008 with two years of eligibility remaining.

Coach Al Groh was clearly annoyed by the injury, and said Ogletree would spend the season sanding the VT initials out of the basketball court in the $130 million John Paul Jones Arena.
