Axon to play at EMU

Axon headed to Eastern Michigan

Ben Axon's college football career will resume in Ypsilanti, Mich., home of the Eastern Michigan Eagles.
Manatee assistant coach Chris Conboy said Axon, a former running back with the Hurricanes, is headed to the school, which plays in the Mid-American Conference.
"It was the only fit for him, and Ben realizes that," Conboy said. "But he liked the coach who recruited him."
After signing with South Carolina, Axon was arrested in May on a marijuana charge. Earlier this month, Gamecocks head coach Steve Spurrier said Axon had not been admitted to the school.
EMU was 3-9 overall and 2-6 in the conference last year, finishing last in the MAC's West Division.
"They've put some money in it to try and improve their status," Conboy said, adding the Eagles' non-conference schedule includes Army, Arkansas and Northwestern. "It's a better conference than people realize.
"It's a great conference. A lot of guys in the NFL played in that conference, and you can get a lot of exposure there."
