A statement from the Ohio State Department of Athletics

We learned last night of the tragic death of Fikayo Idowu, an outstanding young man who touched the lives of so many. Fikayo was a part of the men’s soccer program the last two years and was loved by his teammates and coaches. His family and loved ones are in our hearts and in our prayers during this time of grief.

Idowu, a redshirt sophomore from Madison, Miss., reportedly drowned at Apple Valley Lake, Friday evening. He was 19 years old, and will not be forgotten.

There will be a memorial gathering at Jessie Owens Memorial Stadium Saturday at 9 p.m. All are welcome.
