Knee
September 8, 2021
Alabama head coach Nate Oats confirmed that Burnett (knee) underwent season-ending surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ACL, Mike Rodak of AL.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Burnett, a McDonald's All-American who appeared in 12 games for Texas Tech as a true freshman in 2020-21 before joining Alabama earlier this offseason, was expected to vie for a starting role on the wing in his first year in Tuscaloosa after Josh Primo and John Petty left the Crimson Tide for the NBA. The severe right knee injury will thwart those plans, with surgery now delaying Burnett's Alabama debut until 2022-23. Burnett becomes the second Alabama player this offseason to succumb to a serious knee injury, after forward James Rojas previously tore an ACL in June.
