On Saturday Florida quarterback Treon Harris rallied the Gators to a comeback win over Tennessee. On Monday the school suspended Harris amid an investigation for an alleged sexually assault.
Harris is alleged to have sexually assaulted a female student on campus early Sunday morning according to the school.
The University of Florida Police Department and the Gainesville Police Department are working together to collect evidence according to a school statement.
“We have no tolerance for sexual assault on our campus,” UF president Bernie Machen said in a statement, via ESPN.. “The university is committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for every member of the UF community. We must strive to protect all of our students from sexual harassment and assault, and do everything in our power to promote a safe learning environment.”
Attorney Huntley Johnson will represent Harris.
“We are representing him and we are cooperating with the investigation,” Johnson said. “I am hopeful that he will never be arrested [regarding this case].”
Harris came on in relief of Jeff Driskel in Saturday’s game delivering a 10-9 win over the Volunteers.
