Treon Harris Accused of Sexual Assault

-

Just hours after leading the Florida Gators to their tenth straight victory against the Tennessee Volunteers, true freshman quarterback Treon Harris has been accused of “sexually assaulting a female student” in the early hours of Sunday morning on Florida’s campus.

The university released this statement below, tweeted by Richard Johnson of Jacksonville.com.

As of now, no charges have been filed.

Florida’s president Bernie Machen released a statement regarding the developing situation..

“We have no tolerance for sexual assault on our campus,” Machen stated. “The university is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for every member of the UF community. We must strive to protect all of our students from sexual harassment and assault, and do everything in our power to promote a safe learning environment.”

Head coach Will Muschamp’s weekly Monday press conference was canceled in light of the news.

After Gators’ quarterback Jeff Driskel threw three interceptions against the Volunteers on Saturday, Muschamp benched Driskel in favor of Harris late in the third quarter.

Trailing 9-0, Harris led the Gators to their only points on the day, scoring 10 unanswered to seal the win.

The investigation will reportedly take several weeks to conclude which leaves Harris’ status up in the air.

Florida (3-1, 1-1) will try and avoid the distractions before LSU heads to Gainesville this upcoming Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on the SEC Network.
