Robbie Andreu of the Gainesville Sun reports that Florida Gators wide receiver and punt returner Antonio Callaway has regained his eligibility to play for the team in the 2016 season. Andreu writes:
Even though Antonio Callaway’s case involving a possible student conduct code violation probably will not be resolved by the start of season, the Florida junior wide receiver is eligible to practice with the team and play in games, a source close to the situation told The Sun on Wednesday.
Callaway had been away from the team for virtually all of 2016, along with quarterback Treon Harris, for an unspecified rules violation. Andreu writes on both players’ timelines:
Callaway, along with former quarterback Treon Harris, was banned from campus in January and took classes online for the spring and Summer A semesters. He was cleared to return to classes and use the athletic facilities for the start of Summer B.
Harris also was cleared to return for Summer B, but now is planning to transfer to another school.
Harris officially transferred out of the school in late June, but has not officially landed elsewhere.
Callaway led the Gators in total receiving yards (678) last year, averaging 19.4 yards per catch.
