Late Tuesday night, news broke that Oregon State Beavers' incoming freshman shooting guard Chai Baker was rushed to a Corvallis hospital after he collapsed while playing.
Wednesday morning, it appears his condition is stable.
Alison Posey of WMBB News13 in Panama City, FL provides more information:

Newschannel 7 Sports Director Scott Rossman spoke this morning with Baker's high school coach Steven Welch, who is in touch with Chai's family. Coach Welch told us Chai is now stable, and
doctors believe Chai has some sort of blood clot which caused a "heart event" leading to his blackout.
Coach Welch said Baker was on the ventilator through the night, but they expect to remove it sometime today. He said tests on Chai's heart came back "ok."
Oregon State officials have not made public comment in the matter.
