The death of a Georgia Tech football recruit who was struck by a freight train was ruled a suicide by the Broward County (Fla.) medical examiner’s office, according to multiple reports.
Bryce Gowdy, 17, died early Monday in his hometown of Deerfield Beach, Fla.
A wide receiver, Gowdy signed with the Yellow Jackets on Dec. 18 and was due to enroll at the Atlanta campus next week after finishing his high school classes a semester early.
The medical examiner’s office ruled on Tuesday that the manner of death was suicide and the cause was blunt force injuries.
Gowdy was a wide receiver and defensive back who helped his Deerfield Beach High School team reach the state semifinals this year. He was rated as a four-star prospect.
