Oklahoma State basketball player Tyrek Coger died after a 40-minute team workout on the football stadium stairs in hot weather, university officials said Friday.
The Raleigh, North Carolina, native was 21 years old. No cause of death was cited.
University spokesman Gary Shutt said the team held a 40-minute workout at Boone Pickens Stadium on the stadium stairs. Shutt said Coger did not appear to be struggling, but sat down after and the team went to check on him and noticed there were issues.
Shutt said 911 was called and paramedics arrived at 5:08 p.m. Coger was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m.
