REPORT: Florida Gators Football Player Snitched To Cops & Got Teammates Suspended

Outback Bowl - Florida v Iowa

This upcoming weekend will provide us with a slew of College football games, as it’s that time of the year again. One of the biggest games going down will happen at AT&T Stadium when the #11 ranked Michigan Wolverines take on the #7 ranked Florida Gators.

Florida’s roster is a bit depleted as at least ten players are currently serving suspensions for breaking team rules. The biggest names on that huge list are wide out Antonio Callaway and running back Jordan Scarlett.

Jordan Scarlett really has it bad as he is accused of misusing school funds, and according to My News 13, a teammate on the squad snitched him out to the police.

“Spectrum Sports has learned that a Florida Gators player implicated running back Jordan Scarlett and wide receiver Rick Wells into an ongoing investigation of a misuse of school issued funds.

According to a source, the Gators player named both Scarlett and Wells to the University of Florida Police Department.

The source says that their involvement in the alleged misconduct is the reason both will be suspended for Saturday’s season opener against Michigan. Head coach Jim McElwain confirmed Wednesday the two players will not travel to Arlington, Texas, but did not specifically address the reason for their suspension. McElwain says he wasn’t made aware of Scarlett and Wells involvement until Wednesday afternoon.

Scarlett led UF in rushing last year, totaling 889 yards and six touchdowns. He was expected to start this week.

The Gators will now be without 10 players for Saturday’s opener. On August 13, seven players, including top wide receiver Antonio Callaway were suspended. Multiple reports link the seven suspensions to a misuse of school issued funds.”
