Highly recruited Leto running back Jeremy Deering put most of his official visits on hold until the end of the season so he could concentrate on his senior year.

But after Deering suffered an injury Friday in the Falcons' season finale against Middleton, it might put a wrench in his upcoming visits.

Deering sustained a broken collarbone in Leto's 16-13 overtime win over Middleton Friday, an injury serious enough -- offensive coordinator Frank Rose said it was broken in three places -- that Deering has surgery slated for Tuesday.

That puts this week's scheduled official visit to North Carolina in limbo, said Rose, also Leto's recruiting coordinator. He said it shouldn't, however, affect Deering's planned trip to Illinois the next weekend. He might also make a visit to Rutgers.

Deering already made an official visit to Purdue earlier this season. 

Deering finished the season with 796 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns and 255 receiving yards and 2 touchdowns.
