The 20-year-old offensive lineman Devin Willock died alongside recruiter Chandler LeCroy as the pair got involved in a collision while driving through Athens, Georgia, on early Sunday morning.
It was since the tragic news confirmed that Willock was pronounced dead on the scene while LeCroy, who was driving the car, died on the way to the hospital.
