Knox, a native of Brentwood, Tennessee, and the younger brother of Buffalo Bills tight end Dawson Knox, spent the past four seasons at Ole Miss before transferring to FIU.
Knox, who studied business, died Wednesday evening, school officials said. The cause was not revealed, though the university said police do not suspect foul play.
“Words cannot express the heartfelt sorrow we feel because of the passing of our teammate and friend, Luke Knox,” FIU coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement. “I had the honor of coaching Luke at Ole Miss and FIU. While I admired his passion for football, his genuine love for his family and teammates is what I will always remember. He had a special way of making everyone around him feel comfortable and confident.”
On Saturday, the Bills held a moment of silence for Luke before their preseason game against the Broncos.
