"He's going to have to have some surgery on his knee," said Sweat's mother, Carlette Sweat. "He won't be playing again this year. He wanted to try to get back and play with his team, but he has to have surgery."
Sweat, a five-star prospect at Oscar Frommel Smith in Chesapeake, Virginia, suffered the dislocated knee in the second quarter of last Friday's game against Western Branch.
Sweat's mother said the injury will not keep him from taking his official visits.
"All of the colleges are aware of his injury," Carlette Sweat said. "Nothing has changed. He may have to change his visit schedule because of surgery."
Georgia was set to host the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Sweat on Oct. 4, but Sweat's mother said that visit might have to be rescheduled, depending on when her son has surgery.
Sweat's mother said her son will enroll in the spring as originally planned.
