Jordan McNair with family

Mcnair—a sophomore at the University of Maryland, died two weeks ago after collapsing during an organized team work out and undergoing  a liver transplant at the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center, according to a gofundme campaign set up to assist his family with medical costs. The cause of his death hasn’t been disclosed. The university has enlisted an outside agency to review the case to ensure proper protocols were followed.
