Notre  Dame recruit Matt  James died Friday in Panama City, Fla., after falling from a hotel  balcony, several media outlets reported.

Word of James' death spread so fast, friends had already arranged an  impromptu vigil and started gathering at the school by 10 p.m. In the  next hour, at least 75 cars had arrived.

James, who was won one  week shy of his 18th birthday, was vacationing in Florida for spring  break.

James was a senior at Saint Xavier High School in Cincinnati. Saint  Xavier quarterback Luke Massa was with James when he died, according to  Massa’s father said his sone is “devastated” and “lost one of his best  friends.”

An "impromptu vigil" of grieving students gathered at the school this  evening, and a prayer service is scheduled for tomorrow morning at 9am.
