Jim McElwain: Treon Harris and Antonio Callaway in class, long-term status unresolved



Florida receiver Antonio Callaway and athlete Treon Harris are both on campus, but their long-term status remains unclear, coach Jim McElwain said Monday.

"Right now they're obviously back on campus, doing team workouts and some things like that," McElwain told a group of local reporters. "Nothing's been resolved yet, and there's really not a timeframe on it."

Both players are listed on the Gators' media guide roster, but McElwain didn't have a timetable on when their status will be resolved. Both were initially suspended in January. UF hasn't specified the reasons, but Callaway's attorney has said that the star receiver is the subject of a university code of conduct investigation stemming from an unspecified incident in early December.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Callaway was UF's top receiver last year. As a true freshman, he led UF in receiving yards (678), caught four touchdowns - including the winner against Tennessee - and scored on two punt returns.

Harris has previously served two suspensions - one for what ESPN reported was a failed drug test, and another in 2014 after another student accused him of sexual assault. He was reinstated after the woman dropped her complaint.

In two inconsistent seasons at quarterback, Harris completed 174 of 346 passes (50.3 percent) for 2,695 yards, 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

McElwain said it's important that both players are on campus for academic reasons.

"More than anything, the help you have academically at Farrior Hall and the Hawkins Center is huge. That's really what it's all about. We'll see."
