In August a scandal rocked the Florida Gators football program. Five months later it seems we are starting to get some closure.
On Tuesday, the University announced that four of the nine players suspended for credit card fraud have been reinstated and will participate in team activities this spring.
RB Jordan Scarlett, WR Rick Wells, LB James Houston, and LB Ventrell Miller are the four returning to the program.
Four of the suspended players have announced their intentions to leave the school. WR Antonio Callaway has elected to enter the NFL Draft. DL Jordan Smith OL Richerd Desir-Jones and OL Kadeem Telfort have both announced intentions to transfer.
The addition of Scarlett only boosts an already loaded backfield featuring LaMichal Perine, Malik Davis, Adarius Lemons, and incoming freshmen Daemon Pierce and Iverson Clement.
Florida head coach Dan Mullen released a statement regarding the reinstatements:
“All of our players understand the expectations we have of them to be members of the Florida football program.”
One player currently enrolled in school, DL Keivonnis Davis was involved in a serious scooter accident and his football future is currently uncertain.
