Before Nebraska (ADM Adel HS)
Lane Hovey is one of four walk-ons who come to Nebraska from outside of the state borders. Hovey helped lead ADM Adel High School to a 12-1 record as a senior in 2011, when he was a Class 3A first-team all-state selection. He was a standout for an ADM receiving corps that ranked second in the state in touchdown receptions, third in catches and fourth in receiving yards. Hovey ended his career on a strong note, leading his team with four catches and 33 receiving yards in his final game, a loss in the semifinals of the Iowa Class 3A state playoffs. His third-quarter, 11-yard touchdown pass pulled ADM Adel to within a touchdown. Hovey also played basketball and ran track for the Tigers.
Lane is the son of Kent and Sondra Hovey, and was born on Oct. 8, 1995. He earned spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2012-13.
