The school announced the news Sunday on Twitter, but didn’t reveal the cause of death of the defensive lineman.
“Our hearts are broken by the sudden passing of Brandon Adams. He was a tremendous teammate and friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time,” Georgia Tech Sports wrote on Twitter. (RELATED: Legendary College Football Coach Shockingly Retires)

This is just a tragic situation. Tragic all the way around. Young men should be in the primes of their lives in college. They shouldn’t be dying for no apparent reason at all.
Brandon Adams was one of the kindest and more enjoyable young men I’ve had the pleasure to be around. It breaks my heart learning about his untimely death this morning. Absolutely crushed. I can’t imagine what his family, friends and teammates are going through. Prayers to all.

Let’s all hope the school is able to provide the proper resources to his teammates to help them in this awful time.
I can’t imagine waking up to a text in college that one of the guys you line up next to every day is dead. It’s tragic beyond words.
Susan and I were crushed when we learned about Brandon Adams this morning. He was without a doubt one of the finest people that I’ve had the opportunity to know. He was a talented young man and will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and teammates.
