The 20-year-old sophomore from Kaduna, Nigeria, underwent surgery Tuesday to have a cardiac defibrillator implanted in his chest to monitor his heart's rhythm and deliver energy when an irregularity occurs.
Team trainers revived Negedu after he lost consciousness and a pulse with an automatic external defibrillator and CPR on Sept. 28. He had just completed a team weightlifting session.
He underwent tests at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and Cleveland Clinic before his surgery.
As a freshman, Negedu averaged 7.2 minutes, 1.9 rebounds and 1.7 points in 33 games.
