Florida football: Antonio Callaway cleared for season-opener

Rejoice, Florida Gators fans, wide receiver Antonio Callaway has been cleared for the season-opener of the 2016 college football season against UMass.

Gators head coach Jim McElwain announced the news on Monday morning.

Callaway was initially suspended from the program when there was a code of conduct complaint filed against him. The suspension was altered over the summer which allowed him to rejoin the team for fall camp. He was cleared in the Title IX hearing earlier this month.

Callaway, who is one of the most explosive offensive weapons for the Gators, recorded 35 catches for 678 yards — a freshman record — and four touchdowns as a freshman last season.

However, his most impressive statistic was his 1,211 all-purpose yards which led the team.

Florida is set to open its 2016 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 3 against UMass at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville.
