Herman Williams, who signed last November to play for the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns, collapsed and died Monday while playing ball.

The news was reported by Basketball Times writer Josh Parrott on his Twitter account just after 8pm

Incoming FR G Herman Williams has died. Collapsed while playing ball in Florida. Wonderful guy. Prayers for his loved ones.

Williams, a 6-3 combo guard, was expected to contribute as a freshman. Junior guard Johnathon Stove tweeted:

RIP to Herman Williams man. He was destined to be a great Cajun. This whole program dedicated to you. Watch over us. Prayers for your family

Parrott wrote a story for scout.com when Williams committed to the Cajuns last November.  That article can be seen by clicking here.
