UCLA guard Will McClendon out for 2021-22 season with torn ACL

UCLA freshman guard Will McClendon will miss the 2021-22 season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during preseason workouts.

The 6-foot-2 combo guard is a gritty defender and knockdown shooter known for putting team success first, making him the prototypical recruit for coach Mick Cronin.

“It doesn’t matter if I have zero points — whatever my stat line is, I just want to win,” McClendon, a former Las Vegas Bishop Gorman High standout ranked as the No. 41 player in his class by, told The Times this spring.
