Tallahassee, FL - Students at FAMU are mourning the loss of a fellow Rattler. The university held a vigil for 24-year-old Antwan Ivey Wednesday night.

Ivey, a Charleston Southern University transfer, died last week. Friends say he collapsed while playing basketball at the student recreation center at FAMU. We're told he died of cardiac arrest.

One of Ivey's professors, E. Gaynell Sherrod, Ed.D., says, "When I heard about what happened, I was away during research and I came that weekend. When they told me, my knees almost buckled because we had started to bond. In a quiet way, he was very present in the classes always.

Ivey was known for his smile and admired for his athletic abilities.
