Florida RB Adam Lane Granted Release from Program

Florida has granted the release of redshirt sophomore running back Adam Lane, reports Adam Silverstein of onlygators.com.

“Adam Lane has some family issues that he is dealing with and wants to be closer to home,” head coach Jim McElwain said in a statement released by the school. “As you’ve heard me say many times, family comes first in this program and we will grant him his release and we will do everything we can do to help him.”

Lane (5-foot-8, 215 lbs), who earned most valuable player honors at the Gators’ Birmingham Bowl win over East Carolina, rushed for 181 yards off 7.5 yards per carry and a touchdown in 2014—most of that production coming against the Pirates.

Lane was a three-star prospect for the recruiting class of 2013. A Winter Haven (FL) native, if he is to transfer to an FBS program, it is likely that he will consider American Athletic Conference schools USF and UCF, as both are less than an hour drive to campus.

According to his recruiting profile, Lane was offered by the Bulls.
