One of Auburn's deep-threat receivers is out for the season.
Will Hastings underwent knee surgery Thursday after a setback while recovering from an ACL tear he suffered during the off-season.
Despite appearing in just one game this season, Hastings racked up 525 receiving yards in 2017 and was one of Jarrett Stidham's favorite deep-ball receivers, averaging 20.2 yards per catch.
In the absence of Hastings, freshman wide receiver Anthony Schwartz has succeeded in becoming Stidham’s new go to deep-threat, averaging 20.4 yards a catch through five games.
Schwartz also has the second-most receiving yards out of Auburn's receiving corps behind Darius Slayton.
Hastings will redshirt for the remainder of this the 2018 season and will be eligible to play in 2019.
