Treon Harris’ accuser withdrew her sexual-assault complaint Friday and the university and the UAA quickly reinstated Florida’s freshman quarterback.
Although Harris will not play Saturday against LSU (7:30 p.m., SEC Network), he is completely eligible moving forward.
“We have been notified that the university and legal process is complete,” coach Will Muschamp said.
“Treon has been reinstated to the team, but he will not play Saturday. This has been a learning experience for everyone involved. Treon has been honest with me throughout the process and is looking forward to rejoining his teammates.”

Earlier Friday afternoon, Janine Sikes, UF assistant vice president of media relations and public affairs, announced, “The student who accused Treon Harris of sexual battery has withdrawn her criminal complaint. This means she is not pursuing criminal charges against him at this time but maintains the right to do so in the future. The police report will be released when it is available.”
Harris was suspended by Florida on Monday after the 19-year-old was accused of sexually assaulting a female student at an on-campus dorm around 3 a.m. Sunday.
Harris was never charged. Under Florida law, Harris’ accuser could be charged if authorities believe she filed a false report.
“I couldn’t be happier,” Johnson told the Orlando Sentinel. “The university did the right thing.”
Later, Harris posted on his Instagram account for the first time since the allegations were made public, saying, “I wanna thank everybody who supported me through this whole situation with the prayers and the love. #TheComeBack #GodIsGreat.”
