The Florida Gators’ offense took a bit of a hit on Monday when it was reported that quarterback-turned-wide receiver Treon Harris will be leaving the school to continue his career elsewhere. He has been given his release from the program and would be seeking a transfer.
Harris, a junior, joined the Gators’ program as a four-star recruit in 2014 and he played 20 games over two years at the quarterback position. He was suspended along with star receiver Antonio Callaway earlier this year and was making a transition to his new position, for which he threatened to transfer earlier this year.
Harris will have two years of eligibility left for his career and would have to sit out the 2016 season if he were to stay on the FBS level. This comes after he threw for nearly 3,000 career yards and 18 touchdowns against 10 interceptions, while rushing for 576 yards and three scores.
He could end up being a big part for any team going into the 2017 season, or 2016 if he goes down to the FCS level.
