McElwain: Antonio Callaway will practice, status unchanged



GAINESVILLE – Florida Gators receiver Antonio Callaway will practice with the team Thursday when camp opens tomorrow, but nothing has changed regarding his status, coach Jim McElwain said Wednesday.

“There hasn’t been any change in the status,” McElwain said during UF’s media day. “He’ll be practicing, just like we’ve said. Nothing from a status standpoint has changed. There isn’t a timeframe on that.”

Callaway was suspended in January pending the results of a university code of conduct investigation from an unspecified incident in early December, according to Callaway’s attorney, Huntley Johnson. In June, Johnson said Callaway was allowed to enroll in summer classes and work out with the team before the final resolution.

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound sophomore, was UF’s top receiver last year. He led the Gators with 678 receiving yards and caught four touchdowns, including the winner against Tennessee. He also scored on two punt returns and threw a touchdown pass to Treon Harris in the bowl game.

A school spokesman said last week that there were no final results of any disciplinary outcomes regarding Callaway.

In other news, former Pasco High standout Andrew Ivie and defensive lineman Thomas Holley both received medical exemptions that will end their playing careers. Both will remain on scholarship at UF.
