I'm sure UT's hospital will take better than average care of this young man. He's a Longhorn.
As far as disclosure, I gathered from the article that he's had a kidney condition for some time now. Teams (including the one that gave him a college scholarship) would have known about this, at the least. Perhaps that's why he didn't go before the 14th round.
