Ex-Florida QB Treon Harris transfers to Tennessee State

Former Florida quarterback Treon Harris has made a decision on where he will resume his collegiate career.

While Harris had some interest from FBS teams, he ultimately decided to make the move to the FCS level. According to a report from The Tennessean, Harris is expected to enroll and begin classes at Tennessee State on Monday.

Harris will participate in spring practice and will be eligible to play immediately in 2017.

While the Gators were attempting to convert Harris from quarterback to wide receiver, Tennessee State head coach Rod Reed says Harris will play quarterback for the Tigers.

“He completed 50 percent of his passes with 18 touchdowns so he can run and throw the ball,” Reed said. “He’s athletic and will fit into our system and what we like to do.”

In his two years at Florida, Harris recorded 2,695 passing yards, 18 touchdowns and ten interceptions. The 5-foot-11, 201-pounder also rushed for 570 yards and three scores.
