(SARASOTA FL.) - Indiana University freshman wide receiver Isaac Griffith is in Sarasota Memorial Hospital in Florida in stable, but critical condition.

The Homestead High School graduate was allegedly caught in a riptide and had to be revived on shore. He is currently in a medically induced coma to allow his lungs to heal.

Griffith redshirted for the Hoosiers last season.

IU Athletics released a statement: "We are aware of Isaac Griffith's condition. Our prayers are with Isaac and his family and we ask Hoosier Nation to keep the Griffith family in their thoughts."

At 11:04 p.m., Thursday, Shannon Griffith, Isaac's father, tweeted that he and his wife Kim were boarding a plane to Sarasota. His father said his son is stabilized in a medically induced coma but is "still critical."
