STILLWATER, Okla. — Tyrek Coger, a junior college transfer from North Carolina, has died after a team workout Thursday afternoon, according to Oklahoma State University.

The 21-year-old Cowboy basketball forward collapsed on the court and was transported to Stillwater Medical Center. He was pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m

Coger played last season at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, North Carolina and arrived at Oklahoma State on July 5.

“Tyrek was excited to be at Oklahoma State and had such passion for the game and was looking forward to being an OSU Cowboy,” said Cowboy Head Basketball Coach Brad Underwood. “Losing a member of the team is like losing a member of the family. But we know our loss pales in comparison to the pain his family is going through.”
