One of the top recruits from the 2018 class has suffered a season-ending injury. Vanderbilt freshman point guard Darius Garland's year is over.

Garland, a five-star prospect and the No. 2 point guard in the 2018 cycle, will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury. Vanderbilt head coach Bryce Drew confirmed the unfortunate news with the media today.

Garland has already undergone surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

Garland's freshman campaign was limited to just five games, and really only four when you consider he hurt his knee two minutes into Friday's loss to Kent State.

Before getting injured, Garland was averaging 16.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists per contest. He scored 24 points in his collegiate debut against Winthrop and added 33 in a win over Liberty.

Garland has been projected as a lottery pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, so we will have to see how this injury affects his stock.
