Is Darius Garland already big man on campus at @VandyMBB as a freshman? https://tnne.ws/2KsrTQH  @dariusgarland22

Garland is already one of the most recognizable faces in Vanderbilt athletics. Yet he graduated from Brentwood Academy only a month ago, and he won’t play his first Commodores basketball game until November.

For Garland, it all comes down to his five-star rating, his Middle Tennessee roots and his infectious smile.

“Darius has that grand slam effect,” Vanderbilt basketball coach Bryce Drew said. “He’s local. He’s a great player. He’s a great young man. And other players want to play with him.

“That’s why we are so thrilled that he’s here.”

Updated: Darius Garland's injury and what it could mean for Vandy basketball. https://bit.ly/2Bv4okN

Vanderbilt freshman star Darius Garland left Friday’s 77-75 loss to Kent State with a left knee injury. Coach Bryce Drew said Garland will undergo tests Friday night to determine the severity, but he had no other updates.

The Commodores (4-1) will hold their collective breath and hope Garland, one of college basketball's best freshmen, can return.

"Hopefully, we get some good news in the next 48 hours," said Drew, while acknowledging he doesn't know if it's a short-term or long-term injury.

"... We will obviously be careful with his injury. He obviously has a bright future in basketball, and we just want to make sure we give him the best care we can for him to figure out what's the plan of attack."

Garland, a projected NBA first-round pick next summer, suffered the injury on a left-handed baseline layup. He exited only two minutes into the game, limped to the locker room and returned to the bench wearing a sweatsuit after halftime. During the second half, he could stand but could barely walk.

When asked if Drew had a sense about the severity of the injury, he said, "I don't want to speak out of context. I'm not a doctor. (The team doctors) want to do a very thorough analysis of everything before they comment on what they think it is."
