COLLEGE PARK, Md. (ABC7) — Maryland Terrapins offensive tackle Jordan McNair was taken to the hospital in critical condition after an organized team workout, the team announced on Monday.
The school sent out a press release that said the redshirt freshman is now in stable but still critical condition though they did not specify how he came to be in that state.
"We can confirm that a member of our football team, rising sophomore Jordan McNair, has been hospitalized following an organized team workout," the team said in the release.
"Jordan's an outstanding young man and a beloved member of our Maryland football family," head coach D.J. Durkin said. "Our entire program is supporting Jordan and his family during this time."
The school also did not say when exactly the incident happened but McNair's high school coach Hakeem Sule at the McDonogh School in in Owings Mills tweeted Thursday for people to keep McNair and his family "in their hearts and prayers."
McNair hails from Randallstown and was part of Durkin's 2017 recruiting class, which was regarded as one of the best in Maryland football history. A four-star recruit rated as the 23rd-best player in the country at his position by ESPN, McNair played in one game against Towson during the 2017 season.
With a number of starting offensive linemen recovering from injuries, McNair lined up as the starting right tackle during spring practice and was projected to provide key depth for an offense built around running the football.

"More information will be shared at an appropriate time, and in accordance with the wishes of the family," the football team said. "Our thoughts are with the McNair family."
