Former Michigan defensive tackle Maurice Hurst has received an outpouring of support in the wake of a heart condition diagnosis during testing at the NFL Combine that may keep him from playing football again.
On Sunday, he received it from an unlikely name in former Michigan State linebacker and team captain Chris Frey.

Frey had previously trolled the Wolverines after their loss to South Carolina in the Outback Bowl, but showed all class on Sunday.
Hurst is currently a projected first or second-round talent and was one of the top linemen in the Big Ten last season. He had 61 total tackles, 14.5 for a loss and five sacks to cap an excellent career.
Frey, meanwhile, finished 2017 with 55 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and four sacks, helping the Spartans to finish 10-3 with a Holiday Bowl victory over Washington State.
At this time, Hurst is not participating in the combine and will undergo further tests this week.
