GRAMBLING, La. (AP) -A junior college player who recently signed with Grambling State has died after he became ill at a preseason practice more than a week ago.
Grambling spokesman Ralph Wilson said 21-year-old Henry White died at a Shreveport hospital Wednesday.
Grambling said in a statement he became ill Aug. 14 after conditioning. The statement says Grambling is investigating what may have contributed to White's death.
The 6-6 guard played last season at Hill Junior College in Texas.
White was a prep standout at Washington High in Milwaukee. He played his freshman year at Marshalltown Community College in Iowa before transferring to Hill College.
