Such a shame for the young man.

I guess it's good to have been led to an early diagnosis?

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.

After withdrawing from the NFL scouting combine because of an abnormal heart exam, Utah defensive tackle Star Lotulelei has been told he can continue working out on his own, according to a person informed of the conversations between doctors and the potential top-five draft pick.

The person said it's hoped that it's not a heart condition but rather dehydration, too much sodium in his diet or rapid weight loss in a short timeframe that prompted tests to reveal his heart wasn't pumping at full capacity. Lotulelei dropped almost 10 pounds in three days recently, in part because of the hectic schedule of traveling to the combine and the long days in Indianapolis.

I don't get it. Obviously I haven't seen the games the people pumping him up have seen. He just looks average to me. Reminds me of Travis Johnson.
