Treon Harris to transfer from Florida

The maligned quarterback has two years of eligibility left.

The latest of the Will Muschamp era quarterbacks to transfer from Florida, Treon Harris made the decision to leave Gainesville on Monday, leaving the Gators' 2016 QB situation in disarray. Harris, the former 4-star prospect out of Booker T. Washington (FL) High School, struggled mightily last season in the absence of Will Grier by going for 1,676 yards through the air to the tune of a 50.6 completion percentage with nine touchdowns, six interceptions, and 32 sacks.

Harris got moved recently to the wide receiver room due to the influx of youth to the quarterback position, and with as much potential as the young receivers have, he must have seen the writing on the wall as it pertains to his future at Florida. It'll be interesting to see where Harris ends up to see whether he can put it all together somewhere else or not.

The quarterback's decision to leave did the Gators no favors, as there isn't much depth at the position to begin with. Transfers Austin Appleby and Luke Del Rio look to be the major players for the QB position with four freshmen underneath them on the depth chart. Del Rio might have an edge as he was in Gainesville all of last year, having to sit out due to the NCAA's transfer rules.
