At least at this point, I’m happy to report this young man has not lost his life yet. However, a five-star freshman at the University of Southern California suffered a cardiac arrest this past June and has now been sidelined. Is this young man suffering from the effects of the CONvid shot?
On July 1, highly touted USC freshman basketball player Vince Iwuchukwu suffered major heart failure and collapsed during an informal team practice, he told CBS Sports. He was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was hospitalized for a few days.
“This past summer I had a sudden cardiac arrest during a workout,” Iwuchukwu wrote in a statement CBS Sports. “Since the event, I have received optimal care from the university and my personal expert medical team. Currently, I am adhering to the standard protocol designed to ensure my health and safety. I’m feeling great and my recovery and rehabilitation remain positive.”
The harrowing incident was not known publicly until now.
News: Prized USC freshman/former five-star prospect Vince Iwuchukwu tells @CBSSports he suffered cardiac arrest during an early July team workout and was hospitalized.
It's undetermined when (or if) he'll be cleared by doctors to play for the Trojans. https://t.co/K6Wa0zvmh6

USC officials confirmed the matter to CBS Sports, but did not provide any additional comment in time for this story.
The university has withheld its prized freshman from all basketball-related activities since his health scare. The team began official preseason practices this week. With the exception of extremely limited exercises in recent weeks, Iwuchukwu has largely been reduced to a spectator over the past two-plus months. There is no timetable for a resolution on if or when he would be allowed to return and play for the Trojans, according to Iwuchukwu and his family.
Medical experts, in addition to others in positions of power at the university, are in the process of monitoring Iwuchukwu’s health and progress before determining if he’ll ever be allowed to play for the Trojans.
Interestingly enough, CBS added that this cardiac arrest came a year and a half after another high profile college basketball incident.
In December 2020, Florida’s Keyontae Johnson collapsed on the court during a timeout in the Gators’ game at Florida State. Johnson was evaluated by heart specialists from myriad universities for months and eventually cleared for light workouts, but he was never approved by Florida to return to competition at UF. Johnson graduated from Florida and will play this season as a grad transfer at Kansas State.
Never have we witnessed so many young people especially, athletes in good health suffering cardiac issues and yet, no one in the Mockingbird media is even asking the question of the relationship between the cardiac arrests and the CONvid shots.
