Villavisencio was a senior from Jacksonville, Texas.
Details remain unknown about the accident that happened today, according to various reports.
Villavisencio was a radiological health engineering major at Texas A&M and garnered first-team all-state Academic honors as a senior in high school. He was also valedictorian at Jacksonville High. He saw limited action in his first three seasons before playing in every game for the Aggies in 2011.
Many of Villavisencio's fellow offensive linemen took to Twitter to share their thoughts, including Evan Eike:
There's not a tighter group than the OL and there's no way to explain the feeling of losing a brother...
@JVillavisencio you will be missed
