Billy Knight, a former UCLA basketball player, was found dead in Arizona early Sunday, shortly after posting a chilling video on social media. Basketball coach Dinos Trigonis said on Twitter that he knew the Knight family for more than 20 years.

Knight was a fantastic player for the Bruins between 1997 and 2002, but unfortunately is yet another UCLA alum gone too soon. Each season they advanced to the NCAA Tournament under Steve Lavin and reached the regional semifinals in his final three seasons.

Just days ago, 27-year-old Tyler Honeycutt shot himself in the midst of a standoff with police.

"Notice of Knight's death surfaced after fellow former UCLA player Lorenzo Mata tweeted "...

Nonetheless, there is a strong belief that Knight may have committed suicide judging from the sorry tone of his last message that he had penned down and posted verbally on Youtube. At this time it's unclear his cause of death, but it will soon be determined by the medical examiner in Arizona's Maricopa County, according to ESPN.

'I wasn't honest with a lot of people. even my mom, my brother and my family members. On Instagram, former Phoenix Suns head coach and UCLA teammate Earl Watson posted a short video clip of him and Knight laughing in a vehicle.

"I just feel like I didn't belong here on earth so my time is up", Knight said.

"I was a taker", Knight says. I isolated myself from my friends. He follows by admitting to a life of sin, discussing mental illness, and apologizing to his family and friends. "I just asked God for forgiveness for all the wrong I've done". You can't play around with life. But he said he left "some things" for him, saying it's not much, but it's what he had left. He would go undrafted by the National Basketball Association, but played until 2016 for various teams around the world in countries like France and Japan.

TMZ was the first to report the news.
