More news from Inside MD Sports:

More details have emerged about Jordan McNair, the Maryland football player who collapsed during an organized team workout last week.

According to a GoFundMe page created Wednesday in support of the family, McNair was airlifted to the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where he received a liver transplant a few days later, and “has been fighting for his life this past week.”

Three days ago, the Terps’ football program acknowledged the situation and said McNair was in "critical but stable condition" but didn’t provide details on what led to him being hospitalized, per the family’s request. The family still doesn’t want to disclose all the details of McNair’s medical condition according to the GoFundMe page, but it’s possible McNair suffered a heat stroke.

Former Towson player Gavin Class -- who received a liver transplant after suffering a heat stroke during a preseason practice in 2014 -- tweeted out his well wishes for McNair Monday. “Fellow heatstroke/liver transplant,” the tweet read. “Please keep in prayers.”

Class never suited up for Towson again after his near-death experience, though he tried to become the first D-I liver recipient to play college football. After participating in the Transplant Games in Cleveland in the summer of 2016 Class was ready to rejoin the Tigers, but the school argued it was unsafe. After months of fighting in court, Class’ football career was over.

Football isn’t important for McNair right now. According to the GoFundMe page, the 6-foot-4, 325 pound lineman is expected to remain hospitalized for "the next several months.” The page has already raised more than half of its $20,000 goal in less than 24 hours.
