For a young athlete, this could mean a heart muscle disease in the form of an emperically weak heart muscle, or hypertrophy (extreme thickening of the heart walls) or extreme dilation of the heart chamber(s) or scarring of the heart muscle (from many cause such as infection, auto-immune disease or trauma, or past heart attacks). This is what is found in the condition of what you might know as heart failure or congestive heart failure. The ejection fraction problems are what can and have been involved in "sudden death" on the field occuring in otherwise normal appearing/performing athletes. Depending on what the source of his problem, it would hardly be surprising if he never steps on an NFL field. But we'll have to see. No matter what the outcome, a tough situation for an elite athlete that has come so far.
If it wasn't for combine, Star may find himself in bad situation. However, you gotta feel for the young man as he prepared his life for this big event with so much of promise may come to end. I feel so sorry for the young man. Hope, doctors can come up with something for him to continue his NFL career. So sad.
