Buffalo Bulls Linebacker Brandon Tammaro will have to undergo surgery after tearing his ACL in practice. The six foot two freshman was hoping to have an impressive camp after red shirting last season.

Tammaro was one of the top recurits of Coach Quinn's first season. As Buffalo shifted its recruiting focus back into Michigan and Ohio Tammaro was one of Quinn first targets. He was ranked the #23 player in Michigan by ESPN, and the #30 Blue Chip in Michigan by the Detroit News.

The First-team All-State, All-Detroit Metro and All-County selection after recorded 58 tackles and 5.5 sacks as a senior. He also forced fumbles and broke up three passes.

This season the Bulls are trying to fill the spot left vacant by graduating senior Fred Branch.

There has been no word from the Buffalo Athletics department on how long Tammaro will be sidelined but typically it can take several months or more to get back to 100 percent.
