Former Kentucky defensive lineman Lloyd Tubman has a new home for his college football career. The Louisville native has joined the Austin Peay program down in Clarksville and will three years of eligibility remaining. Kentucky hosts Austin Peay this season.

As you well know, Tubman left UK amid rape allegations by his ex-girlfriend, which resulted in his indefinite suspension from the team. A Fayette County grand jury eventually decided not to indict Tubman over the alleged incident, but UK’s Student Conduct Board would not allow him to return to the university, even after the charges were dropped.

In a new exclusive with The Leaf-Chronicle, Tubman called those six months of his life “a nightmare.”

    Im from the Clarksville area. Very nice community down there, i’m sure they will embrace him. There is already a lot of UK fans down there, this is the same town that produced Alex Poythress out of Northeast High School. Best of luck to the young man.

  2. I don’t know if he did what he was accused of, but the charges were dropped, and it’s innocent until proven guilty, so I say good for him. Keep your nose clean Lloyd.

    I still wonder how much better our defense might be with him.
