NASHVILLE, Tennessee -- Former Florida quarterback Treon Harris visited Tennessee State during the fall and has decided to continue his career with the Tigers.
Harris is expected to enroll at TSU on Monday and participate in spring practice, coach Rod Reed said....
Harris was suspended three times at Florida and was not enrolled in school in the fall. He will be eligible in the fall and has two years of eligibility remaining.
Harris, a 5-foot-11, 201-pound Miami native, started In six games at Florida in 2014 and nine in 2015.
In two seasons he completed 174 of 346 passes for 2,695 yards with 18 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
He also rushed for 570 yards and three TDs.
"Back during the fall when (Harris) didn't return to Florida and we were dealing with some injuries at quarterback and needed a guy that could come in, we started a conversion with him," Reed said. "He came up and visited for our game against Eastern Kentucky and liked what he saw. We stayed in contact after that."
