Antonio Callaway forgoes senior season at Florida – Florida Times-Union
After three troubled years – only two of which he actually played – University of Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway has signed with an agent and will forego his senior season with the Gators.
The news was first reported by Neil Stratton of Inside the League. Callaway has signed with former University of Miami player Mel Bratton of MB5 Sports.
Callaway, a graduate of Miami Washington, did not play in 2017 while under suspension for his role in a credit card fraud case. He has since entered a deferred prosecution program.
A dangerous deep threat and return specialist, Callaway played 26 games for the Gators and finished with 89 receptions for 1,399 yards and seven touchdowns. He is the only player in Florida history to account for touchdowns by running, receiving, passing, punt returns and kickoff returns.
He made a splash early in his freshman season when he caught a 63-yard touchdown pass from Will Grier on a fourth-and-long play to beat Tennessee 28-27 in 2015.
Before Callaway was embroiled in the credit-card scandal that also involved eight other teammates, he pleaded no contest to possession of drug paraphernalia last July after an initial charge of marijuana possession and was the subject of a UF Title IX investigation for alleged sexual assault in December of 2015. He was cleared after telling investigators that he was too high on marijuana to have had sex with his accuser.
