In brief: Would depend on trea
This would depend on treatment options you choose.
The cruciate injury is a major debilitating injury that can be rehabbed to about 80% of pre injury status when properly evaluated and treated. Would suggest that he be seen by a specialist as soon as possible.

In brief: Yes
Reconstruction of an acl tear should strongly be considered in a young active individual especially if they want to continue to play sports/engage in high demand activities.
Without an acl they may continue to experience giving way of the knee, each time potentially incurring further damage to the knee.
