UF’s Floyd adopted after NCAA case
USA Today is reporting that Florida Gators junior defensive tackle Shariff Floyd was adopted by the businessman who provided Floyd with extra benefits.
“(The adoption) was not something we planned, but it’s been a natural fit,” the businessman, Kevin Lahn, said in an email to USA Today’s Rachel George, who used to cover the Gators football beat by The Orlando Sentinel.
The article alleges Floyd continues to receive “far more from his adoptive father,” and suggests that Lahn has found a “loophole” in NCAA rules because there are no limits on what parents can provide their student-athlete children.
