Heintz is the second KSU football player in recent years to die following a workout.

Part of the Golden Flashes' 2017 recruiting class, the 19-year-old was coming to Kent State from Kenton, Ohio, a city in the western part of the state.

In a statement, Kent State University says Tyler Heintz was transported by paramedics to a hospital following football conditioning drills at Dix Stadium Tuesday.

He said it might take several weeks to figure out the cause of death and the autopsy is just "one piece of the puzzle". The school's football program responded to the news of Heintz's death on Twitter.

The two-star recruit from Kenton, Ohio, had dreams of playing Division 1 college football, but they were cut short tragically. Jason Bitsko, another offensive lineman, died in 2014. Pray for his family.
