Devon Wylie was a speedy wide receiver with great hands. The former Fresno State wide out is dead at 35, according to reports.

Wylie played five seasons at Fresno State from 2007-2011 before he was a fourth-round pick of the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Wylie had 98 catches for 1,327 yards and eight touchdowns in his career with the Bulldogs. His best receiving season came in 2011 when he had 56 catches for 716 yards and a TD. He caught four TDs as a junior in 2009.

A member of Wylie’s family announced his death Monday.

“We wanted to make this post so people who knew and loved Devon could learn of his passing because we don’t have the capacity to reach out to everyone in this hard time,” the post said. “There are no words to express the sadness that comes from losing a brother, dear friend and an amazing uncle. Devon had so much love and joy to give. Always making people laugh and entertaining us with his football skills, guitar jams, silly jokes and voices, back-flip tricks, fun banter Star Wars obsession chat, Halo nights and not to mention his beautiful smile. We will miss him always.”

Please keep the Wylie family in your prayers. No other details about his death have been released at this time.
