Eric Hoffses broke the news that Clifford is going to have minor surgeries in the next few weeks and may redshirt. All of us who follow BC Basketball have been hedging on Clifford ever making a full recovery. At this point I am not worried about the upcoming season. Fortunately the team is built in a way that they can succeed with or without him (obviously with him is preferred). Whatever happens with Donahue is also now independent of Clifford. After all, he is just one player. My real concern at this point is Dennis.
Clifford always seemed too good to be true. A local, late bloomer (most had him pegged as an Ivy League level player), Clifford just got better after committing to BC. Here was a true seven-footer who moved well, had strength and good offensive skills. He was set to be our best big man since Bill Curley. Who knows what will happen now.
I hope that whatever happens with his surgery or redshirt, Clifford gets better. Not for the team but so he can be the player he was meant to be.
