VCU sophomore Jarren McAllister (Wake Forest, N.C.) has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, and will miss the remainder of the 2020-21 season, Head Coach Mike Rhoades announced Wednesday.

McAllister, a 6-foot-4 sophomore guard, suffered the injury earlier this week in practice. He will have surgery to repair the ligament next week and will look to return for the 2021-22 season.
