BREAKING: FSU and RB Khalan Laborn Part Ways

The short, but action-filled career of running back Khalan Laborn has come to an end at Florida State. First reported by Noles247, Laborn will be removed from the team this week as the team continues to prepare what they hope is a 2020 season.

Khalan Laborn came to Florida State as a top-flight running back recruit from Virginia Beach, VA. Rated as a 5-star and the number one all-purpose back, he joined fellow 2017 signee Cam Akers in what was expected to be a dynamite 1-2 punch for the Noles.

Things never really got on track for Laborn, though. In 2017 he redshirted while being a contributing member of the scout team.

2018 was expected to be when he burst onto the scene. A significant knee injury derailed his freshman season, leaving him to prepare for a comeback in 2019.

In 2019 he appeared in 10 games, amassing 297 yards rushing, 4 touchdowns, and 66 yards receiving. Things were looking up for 2020 as he had a chance to finally be the primary guy and it looked like his knee was 100% healthy.

Throughout his time at FSU, Khalan could not stay out of the doghouse leading to multiple suspensions, and his name was always tied to being an unhappy player looking to transfer.

He’s always seemed like he wanted out at FSU and had been talked into staying numerous times. There’s also the fact that many in his family weren’t fans of former FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher. 

FSU now enters 2020 with 5 running backs on its roster, none of which were on the team in 2019. 

Stay tuned as we will update you on this developing story.
