Baylor freshman Langston Love to miss season with torn ACL

The Baylor Bears have suffered a significant setback ahead of the upcoming college basketball season. 

Baylor confirmed Monday that freshman guard Langston Love suffered a torn ACL in Saturday's private scrimmage against the Texas A&M Aggies and will miss the entire 2021-22 campaign. Love scored 13 points before he went down in the second half of that scrimmage. 

"Langston has been a great addition to our program, and we were really excited about his potential to contribute on the court this season," Baylor head coach Scott Drew said in the school's release. "While we're disappointed he won't have that opportunity, he's a terrific teammate who will do whatever he can to help us from the sidelines this year. Langston has a great support system, and we know he'll work hard and come back stronger than ever." 

According to Jeff Borzello of ESPN, Love arrived at Baylor ranked No. 28 by ESPN for his recruiting class and as the country's No. 7 shooting guard prospect. 

No. 8 Baylor begins the regular season against the Incarnate Word Cardinals on Nov. 12.
