Treon Harris is an ex-Gator. Florida head coach Jim McElwain has announced that the now-former Gator starting quarterback-turned-wide receiver has decided to transfer to another school.
Harris had been serving a suspension for allegedly violating the University of Florida's student code of conduct, though no explanation for the suspension has officially been released. The suspension caused Harris to be sidelined during the Gators' spring practice, and he had yet to be reinstated.
Harris threw for 1,676 yard with nine touchdowns and six interceptions in 12 games in 2015. He replaced now former Gator QB Will Grier at starting QB for the final four games of the season after Grier failed a performance-enhancing drug test, and was punished with a one-year suspension by the NCAA. Greer transferred to West Virginia in April.
Due to NCAA rules, Harris would have to sit out the 2015 season if he transferred to another FBS-level school. He would be automatically be eligible if he transferred to an FCS-or-lower-level school.
