He was expected to be Clemson's top wide receiver in 2020 after the loss of Tee Higgins to the NFL.

"The frustrating thing for Justyn is that he feels perfectly fine", Swinney said, via The Athletic's Grace Raynor.

After showing vast potential at Clemson the past two years, Ross resides on first-round radars for next year.

Head coach Dabo Swinney announced during a Monday Zoom call that an X-ray revealed that Ross has what is being called a congenital fusion of his neck and spine and will undergo surgery Friday. Ross suffered what the team thought was a stinger during a scrimmage in the final practice session before the coronavirus shutdown ended spring workouts.

In two seasons Ross totaled 1865 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns.

Last season, Ross only had one 100-yard game, but he was still steady, explosive, and showed off the talent and skills to potentially be a top target at the next level.

Expected to be a first round pick in next year's draft - after being Clemson's No. 1 target and most unsafe receiver - Ross will undergo surgery with the hopes that he'll be ready for the NFL Draft process in 2021.

Ross pulled down 46 receptions for 1000 yards and nine touchdowns his freshman year, with 148 of those yards and a pair of scores coming in Clemson's Cotton Bowl win over Notre Dame.
