One of those shots pierced Aaron's spine, leaving him without feeling in his legs. "They can't remove it because they are afraid it could be unsafe and hinder him even more to do so".

As a redshirt freshman in 2017, Aaron recorded 13 tackles and 0.5 tackles for loss in 8 games.

From an emotional standpoint, it has been a roller coaster for his parents - Larry Aaron Jr., and Melissa - and it is something they are trying to come to grips with on a daily basis. His family said at the time he was shielding his girlfriend after a fight broke out near him.

Aaron underwent rehab at University of Maryland Rehabilitation and Orthopedic Institute in early January.
