ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -A Central Florida redshirt freshman wide receiver died Tuesday after offseason conditioning drills on campus.
Ereck Plancher, of Naples, was pronounced dead shortly before noon Tuesday at a hospital, said Joe Hornstein, UCF's associate athletics director for marketing and communications. He said Plancher took a knee, became unresponsive and was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
``We're still gathering some of that information at this point,'' Hornstein said.
UCF's spring practices weren't scheduled to start until Wednesday, but Hornstein said 82 players were there for coach-led conditioning. All practices are now canceled until further notice, Hornstein said.
Plancher, 5-foot-10 and 184 pounds, was a two-time letterman at Lely High School. He majored in business at UCF and was a high school National Honor Society member.
