Former UA standout collapses, hospitalized

BRADENTON, FL - A person familiar with the situation says former Alabama standout point guard Mikhail Torrance collapsed after a workout in Bradenton, Fla. on Friday and is hospitalized in critical condition.

Torrance had been training at the IMG Academies when he lost consciousness, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the player's family had not authorized the release of any information.

Torrance said earlier this summer that he was diagnosed in 2009 with an enlarged heart, which is why he believes he went unchosen in this year's NBA draft. He signed a summer-camp deal with the Miami Heat, but was with the organization less than a week and never cleared for on-court play.

AOL Fanhouse first reported Torrance's collapse.
