Jor­dan McNair, a mem­ber of the Univer­sity of Mary­land football team, died Wed­nes­day.

McNair was hos­pi­tal­ized after an or­ga­nized team work­out on May 29.

McNair was a ris­ing sopho­more at the univer­sity. And after mak­ing his col­le­giate de­but against Tow­son last year, he took a red­shirt year.

An of­fen­sive line­man re­cruited from Mc­Donogh School in the Bal­ti­more area, McNair was a three-star re­cruit in 2017 out of Ran­dall­stown, Mary­land.

Ex­ec­u­tive ath­letic direc­tor Da­mon Evans said in a state­ment that coun­sel­ing ser­vices are avail­able to the play­ers and staff.

“Our thoughts and sup­port con­tinue to be with his fam­ily as they grieve the loss of this out­stand­ing young man,” Evans wrote.

The school did not give a cause of death.
