Marquese Meadow, a freshman defensive lineman at Morgan State, died Sunday two weeks after leaving the practice field after becoming ill.

According to school officials, Meadow complained that he was disoriented at practice on Aug. 10.

“He seemed to be making progress and it took a turn for the worse yesterday, and he passed away [Sunday] morning,” Morgan State director of public relations Clint Coleman said. “Our prayers are with family at this very difficult time, his Morgan State family is mourning his death.”

A cause of Meadow’s death has not been determined.

At 6-foot-2, 300-pounds Meadow drew college interest from Akron, Eastern Michigan, Maryland and Tennessee, but he chose to attend Morgan State, his father’s alma mater. Funeral arrangements have yet to be released.
