by February 20, 2013

Very sad news out of North Carolina, where 17-year old junior Josh Level collapsed and passed away during the fourth quarter of a basketball game last night. The New Garden Friends prospect was being recruited by ACC and Big 12 programs, according to MaxPreps. It is still not clear what caused Level to collapse. From the Citizen-Times: “Former Christ School basketball player Josh Level collapsed and died during a game Tuesday night in Winston-Salem. Level was pronounced dead after being taken to nearby Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. Level was a junior at New Garden Friends School in Greensboro and playing at Quality Education on Tuesday night. He averaged 9.0 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game for Christ School his sophomore year. Level began this season with the Greenies before leaving the program in December.”
