Former Florida QB Treon Harris Transferring To Tennessee State


Former Florida quarterback Treon Harris will transfer to Tennessee State and be eligible to play immediately.


Treon Harris’ ability once took him from a four-star recruit to the starting quarterback at Florida.

Now, after leaving the Gators program this past summer, he will spend his playing days playing for Tennessee State in Nashville.

Per 247Sports, Harris has decided to transfer to the FCS program and will be able to play immediately. The Tigers, which play in the Ohio Valley Conference, finished the 2016 season 7-4 and 4-3 in conference play.

During his two years in Gainesville, Harris threw for 2,695 yards and 18 touchdowns under two head coaches: Will Muschamp and Jim McElwain. Before he decided to transfer leading up to this season, Harris had transitioned to wide receiver.

Off-the-field issues also plagued Harris’ tenure at Florida, including being suspended for the 2014 matchup against LSU after being accused of sexual battery, which the accuser later withdrew. In 2015, he was suspended for the rivalry game against Tennessee due to breaking team rules. He finished the 2015 season with three straight losses while throwing just one touchdown in those games, including a 9-for-24, one touchdown and one interception performance against Alabama in the SEC Championship game.

Harris was a big-time prospect out of Booker T. Washington in Miami, which he led to a national championship in 2013.
