Ex-Gator Adam Lane reportedly heading to E. Kentucky


It looks as though reports of former Florida running back Adam Lane leaving the team because he wanted to be closer to home are not true. It has been reported Wednesday morning that Lane has decided to transfer to FCS program Eastern Kentucky, despite him being from Winter Haven, Florida.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported the news of Lane’s transfer.

It was also reported that Lane has been texting his friends and former Florida teammates and telling them that he will be next playing for the Colonels.

Lane reportedly left Florida because of “family issues that he is dealing with” and that he wanted “to be closer to home.” If that was the case, he would have stayed with the Gators. Eastern Kentucky is located in Richmond and Florida is located in Gainesville.

The latter is 130 miles from his hometown, while the former is 850 miles away.

Something doesn’t seem to be adding up right, but either way, Lane will be eligible to play immediately for the Colonels due to them being in the FCS. The former three-star running back in Florida’s 2013 recruiting class will have three years of eligibility left starting in 2015.

The Colonels open the 2015 season on September 3 when they host Valparaiso.
