Ray Lewis III, the son of Baltimore Ravens legend and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis, has died at 28, according to an Instagram post by his younger brother, Rahsaan Lewis.

The circumstances surrounding the death were not revealed.

“Really can’t believe I’m even typing this but RIP big brother,” Rahsaan Lewis wrote. “A true angel I pray (you’re) at peace now because ik how much you was (really) hurtin … I love you I love you I love you.”

Ray Lewis III played college football at Miami, his father’s alma mater. The younger Lewis was a running back in high school in Florida and later played cornerback at Coastal Carolina and Division II Virginia Union.

“Great young man and a better teammate,” Virginia Union associate head coach Diego Ryland told TMZ Sports. “The entire Virginia Union University community is praying for the family as they deal with the loss of Ray.”
