Baylor men’s basketball head coach Scott Drew announced on Monday that standout recruit, freshman guard Langston Love suffered a season-ending injury Saturday in a private scrimmage against Texas A&M University. Love is expected to make a full recovery to be ready for the 2022-2023 season as a redshirt freshman after he undergoes surgery to repair a torn ACL.
The four-star player was ranked No. 28 in the class of 2021 and is a part of Baylor’s highest-ranked recruiting class in the program’s history at No. 4 by ESPN. He scored 13 points before injuring himself in the second half of the 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,” Drew said. “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.”
