Before speaking to the Broward County Gator Club on Wednesday evening, coach Jim McElwain confirmed that Callaway and Harris are still suspended.

“Still the same thing,” McElwain said when asked about their status.

Just before the start of spring practice in March, McElwain revealed that Callaway and Harris had not been with the team since January and would miss spring football. A timeline has not been given for their return.

A press release issued by Gainesville attorney Huntley Johnson, who is representing Callaway but not Harris, stated that Callaway was suspended on Jan. 27 for a violation of the Student Conduct Code for an incident that “supposedly” occurred in early December 2015.

Johnson wrote that his office conducted its own investigation of the allegation and found it to have “no merit.”  The press release refers to Callaway being on an “interim suspension from the University of Florida pending resolution of the accusation.”
