The Florida Gators have suspended junior wide receiver Treon Harris according to ESPN, who also reported that Harris and wide receiver Antonio Callaway have been away from the team since January.
“We’re without a couple of guys who haven’t been with our team since January in Treon and Antonio,” Gators head coach Jim McElwain said. “They’re still doing some school work and that kind of stuff. But they haven’t been with us since January and they won’t be with us as we’re rolling, so you won’t see those guys out there at practice. Guys, that’ll be the last that we talk about that.”
This is quite the development, as Florida starts spring practices tomorrow and Harris was expected to take his first reps at his new position, having previously been a quarterback while Callaway impressed as a freshman last year in both the receiving and punt returning game.
But what’s most puzzling here is the fact that Harris and Callaway have both been away from the team since January, but McElwain didn’t make any mention of it until today and didn’t give any reason for their absence, be it academic or for a violation of team rules.
That said, be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on this developing story!
