Former Ohio State and NFL quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. died on Saturday morning after being struck by a vehicle in South Florida. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news. Haskins was 24.

Haskins, who signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in January, was with other members of the team in South Florida for training. He was less than one month away from celebrating his 25th at the time of his death.

Haskins started his career with the Washington Football Team, when he was selected with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Haskins became one of the top quarterbacks in the 2019 NFL Draft class after posting incredible numbers during his lone season as a starter at Ohio State in 2018. He collected plenty of honors for his outstanding year.

In 2018, Haskins started all 14 games for the Buckeyes, throwing for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns while completing passes at a 70% clip. He was a winner of the B1G Offensive Player of the Year, B1G Quarterback of the Year and was a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Haskins was also named the B1G Championship Game MVP after throwing for 499 yards and 5 touchdowns in a win over Northwestern to claim a conference title. He also earned Rose Bowl MVP honors after throwing for 251 yards and 3 touchdowns to defeat Washington.
