— A year ago, Florida quarterback Treon Harris was a high school star in the state.
He was a three-star recruit coming out of high school and was the top recruit in the nation.
Now he’s a four-star prospect.
But he still wants to play football.
“I’m not going to play college ball,” Harris said.
Harris is not alone. “
The only thing I’m thinking about right now is my family, my school and playing football.”
Harris is not alone.
The last time Florida was ranked No. 1, Florida State’s quarterback was ranked the top player in the country.
Now, the Gators have fallen behind Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee and Notre Dame in the rankings.
That’s because Florida hasn’t gotten to No. 2.
And it’s not just because the SEC has taken a back seat to the ACC.
It’s because the ACC has a more important job: getting its own star to play.
And when the top of the league isn’t getting any of the attention, it’s easy to forget about the SEC.
It is where you see the most elite athletes of any major college sports.
The SEC doesn’t get to be a national powerhouse until it is No. 3.
It doesn’t matter if it’s Florida, Alabama, Clemson or Georgia Tech.
It just has to be No. 4.
The best college football teams don’t have the chance to get to that position until they’re ranked No: 1.
So it’s understandable why Harris didn’t want to take the easy route.
“He’s a high-character guy,” said coach Jim McElwain.
“But he wants to make sure he gets the best education possible.
And I think that’s the only way he’ll do that.”
Harris has had a difficult year.
After losing to Florida in the national championship game, he was suspended for the second half of the season for violating the team’s personal conduct policy.
He also was fined $1,500.
That suspension cost him an opportunity to make his case to be eligible for the 2016 draft.
He chose not to attend the NFL Combine, which was held in Indianapolis, and he wasn’t even invited to the combine, which took place in Chicago.
Harris was supposed to be among the first picks of the draft, but he was arrested on a DUI charge that landed him in jail for six days.
The arrest was linked to a nightclub incident in Miami that led to a DUI arrest, which led to his arrest.
Now his family is trying to figure out what happened.
“We’re looking for the truth,” said Tarrant County Sheriff’s Detective Tim Tatum, who is helping Harris’ legal team.
“It’s been a very difficult year.”
The arrests came on the heels of a DUI case in which Harris was accused of having sex with a 16-year-old girl.
It was not the first time Harris had been arrested for drinking and driving.
In February 2016, he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of DUI in connection with a DUI incident that happened in April.
But a judge sentenced Harris to probation.
“That was one of the worst things that I have ever experienced in my life,” Harris recalled of that incident.
“At that time, I had nothing to do with the DUI and I wasn’t involved in anything with alcohol or drugs or any other issues.”
Harris was arrested again in April, when police found a man unconscious and with injuries on his neck after he had been stopped by police for speeding.
The victim, identified as 21-year old Matthew Harris, was found in a parking lot in Orlando.
He died three days later.
Harris pleaded no first-degree murder to the DUI charge, and in August he was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to pay $5,000 in restitution.
But that’s not what really brought him down.
The second DUI charge was a felony, and because Harris pleaded guilty to it, the judge reduced his sentence to three months probation.
He wasn’t allowed to drive again for another two years, but that’s all he had to do to get his probation reduced to a suspended sentence.
“If I had gone to jail, I probably would have had to pay the full amount of that money,” Harris told me.
“There was no way I was going to go through that.”
When he was first arrested, Harris said, “I thought I was the only one, I thought I’d get away with it.
And then it happened to me.
But I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
His probation was revoked, and now he is facing two felony charges: assault on a law enforcement officer and driving while intoxicated.
Harris says he was not driving when he was pulled over and that he was at home for a family emergency when he got pulled over.
“As soon as I got pulled off, I didn’t even know what happened,” he said.
The other two charges were
