Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in five passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in a loss to LSU over the weekend.

Robinson exceeded 120 receiving yards in Florida's first two games, but had only 35 yards combined over his previous two games before Saturday. Robinson is an interesting prospect with NFL size (6-foot-1, 205 pounds), but we won't get an accurate gauge of his potential until he has a competent quarterback and offensive system in place around him. When Jeff Driskel struggles, nobody gets catches, not even his No. 1 target.

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel went 14-for-25 with 183 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in a 30-27 loss to LSU on Saturday.

He added 71 rushing yards and a score on 21 carries (his teammates combined for only 52 rushing yards, 35 of them coming on an Andre Debose scamper). We'd love to perceive Driskel as a salvageable prospect in a bad situation, but the truth of the matter is that he'd have been replaced long ago were it not for his pedigree. He was the No. 1 QB in the 2011 class, which included Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley, amongst others.

Florida HC Will Muschamp announced freshman QB Treon Harris will play against Missouri, but Jeff Driskel will start.

Harris was held out last week against LSU after being accused and investigated for sexual battery. Those charges were dropped days later. Harris replaced Driskel against Tennessee, and helped the Gators achieve a come from behind victory.

Florida has reinstated freshman QB Treon Harris after accusations of sexual battery were dropped, however he will not play versus LSU on Saturday.

Head coach Will Muschamp announced the school's investigation and the police process are complete. "This has been a learning experience for everyone involved. Treon has been honest with me throughout the process and is looking forward to rejoining his teammates," Muschamp added. Jeff Driskel will start and redshirt sophomore Skyler Mornhinweg will be the backup. Don't expect Will Grier's redshirt to be burned this season.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Florida offensive coordinator Kurt Roper said Florida freshman QB Will Grier "is ready to step in if needed, but UF had hoped to redshirt the high-profile recruit."

The suspension of freshman Treon Harris for alleged sexual battery could put the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Grier in line to play, if starter Jeff Driskel is injured. Even though Harris has now been reinstated, the Gators have chose to have Harris sit out this Saturday's game. Florida will also have redshirt sophomore Skyler Mornhinweg as another available option.

The woman who accused Florida freshman QB Treon Harris of sexual battery has dropped her complaint, according to attorney Huntley Johnson.

"I am pleased for Treon Harris and his family. The ball is in the university’s court," Johnson's statement concluded. Florida suspended Harris during the investigation, which they could still continue. The school announced they will have more information on Harris' football status Friday afternoon.

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel has "exhibited almost no feel for playing the position," according to an NFC player personnel director.

"(Driskel) looks the part, but he's exhibited almost no feel for playing the position," the director said. "I've been very patiently waiting to be impressed, but ..." Because backup Treon Harris is suspended indefinitely, Driskel, incredibly, remains unchallenged for the starting spot. Doesn't sound like the NFL is enthusiastic about Driskel's chances of taking advantage of his remaining collegiate snaps.

Florida HC Will Muschamp said freshman QB Treon Harris remains indefinitely suspended.

Harris was accused of sexually assaulting a female student early Sunday morning, just after leading Florida to a come-from-behind win against Tennessee. Per the Tampa Bay Times: "The woman said Harris sexually assaulted her after they arrived at the Springs, where they both live. Those familiar with the investigation said evidence was collected from Harris’ room." Were it not for that incident, Harris would be Florida's starting quarterback right now. Instead, Jeff Driskel will remain behind center. Muschamp declined comment about Harris' situation, but said it’s "a serious charge." Either Skyler Mornhinweg -- who is in his own hot water after getting into a fist fight over cleats with a teammate earlier this week -- or Will Grier will serve as the No. 2 quarterback going forward.
Oct 8 - 7:58 PM

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel "struggles stringing together completions of any kind," according to NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

The No. 1 quarterback of the 2011 class -- which included Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater, Marcus Mariota, Johnny Manziel and Brett Hundley, among others -- is at an all-time low after going 11-for-23 for 59 yards and three interceptions in Saturday's 10-9 win over Tennessee. Gators' coach Will Muschamp yanked Driskel with a 9-0 deficit and put in Treon Harris in the fourth quarter. Harris, of course, led the Gators to the win, but was then suspended indefinitely after being accused of sexual assault. Driskel remains the starter.

Florida redshirt sophomore QB Skyler Mornhinweg got into a fight with teammate DL Gerald Willis over a pair of cleats outside of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Monday evening.

"Looks like a fight between two individuals, both are listed as suspect, both are listed as victims, so they hit each other," Major Brad Barber of the University of Florida Police Department told 247Sports. "They were involved in a fight [Monday] evening. It appears that both have withdrawn the complaint. There will be no charges." A school spokesperson stated that "[i]t was a misunderstanding between teammates." 247Sports reported the following: "Mornhinweg told a UFPD officer that his cleats had gone missing and been found in Willis’ locker. He went to confront Willis outside of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium about it, and the confrontation became physical. According to Willis’ statement to police, he pushed Mornhinweg, who then struck him on the chin. Willis responded by striking Mornhinweg in the mouth."

Florida senior QB Jeff Driskel "has the necessary physical skills to play in the NFL but the intangibles and signal caller intelligence are lacking," writes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Driskel went 11-for-23 for 59 yards and three interceptions in Saturday's 10-9 win over Tennessee, one of the worst performances you'll ever see. "Driskel was the number one rated high school quarterback prospect out of high school and displayed next level skill early in his Gator career but its been all downhill since his injury last season," Pauline wrote. "The most recent evidence was Saturday as Driskel could not move the Gators offense and was pulled from the game after completing under 50% of his passes, throwing three pick and getting sacked three times."
Oct 6 - 9:06 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that Florida redshirt senior OT Chaz Green "displayed his versatility against Tennessee."

"Chaz Green seems a bit dinged up from his ankle injury several weeks ago but the Florida tackle displayed his versatility against Tennessee," Pauline wrote. The Gators prospect was "usually lining up on the left side" and moved to the strong side and did a solid job run blocking," according to Pauline.

Florida freshman QB Treon Harris has been accused of sexually assaulting a female student in a school residence hall early Sunday morning.

A Florida announcement notes an investigation is currently underway and they do not have information on possible charges at this time. Harris has been suspended from all team activities at this time. The quarterback entered Saturday's game against Tennessee, which the Gators ultimately ended up winning.
Oct 6 - 1:00 PM

Florida freshman QB Treon Harris is being investigated in a legal matter, according to beat writer David Jones.

Harris is serving as the team's No. 2 QB and even replaced Jeff Driskel in the win over Tennessee. Jones notes Harris has not been charged at this time. Florida cancelled their regularly scheduled Monday press conference, and this is likely the reason why. More information should be available soon.
Oct 6 - 12:16 PM

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III had an interception in Saturday's 10-9 win against Tennessee.

The Gators and Vols played one of the ugliest games you'll ever see in front of 102,455 unfortunate souls at Neyland Stadium. The contest featured five interceptions, one touchdown total and a benched quarterback (Jeff Driskel). Because of the defense led by Hargreaves, Florida, trailing 9-0 in the fourth quarter, was able to keep the game close until backup Treon Harris led the squad to 10 points and the win. NFL.com ranked Hargreaves III as the No. 17 overall player in college football prior to the year. Daniel Jeremiah compares him to Joe Haden. The true sophomore is not yet draft-eligible.
