Lane Kiffin is building a monster at FAU one transfer at a time.
For his latest act, Kiffin landed former Alabama running back BJ Emmons, who signed with Florida Atlantic on Wednesday.

Emmons was a top running back in 2016 and rushed for 173 yards on 35 carries for the Tide that season. He transferred to Hutchinson Community College and played there last year, so he would be eligible to play for FAU this fall.
Emmons is likely to team with Devin Singletary, who rushed for 1,920 yards and 32 touchdowns as a sophomore, to form a top backfield for the Owls.
