Treon Harris’ days as a quarterback at Florida appear to be over, but it remains to be seen whether the rising junior can pick up the nuances of the wide receiver position in time to contribute this fall.

After his well-documented struggles this past season, Harris will be a receiver when spring practice begins in a few weeks, according to a report by Gridiron Now.

School officials have not officially commented, and Harris is still listed as a quarterback on the official team website, but an innocuous tweet by graduate transfer quarterback Austin Appleby appears to confirm the news.

Harris was not included in Appleby’s picture of Gators quarterbacks.

Harris will instead join a deep receiving corps led by rising sophomore and fellow Miami Booker T. Washington High School alum Antonio Callaway and speedy slot man Brandon Powell. Additionally, McElwain will be welcoming five incoming freshman receivers, including a heralded trio of four-star recruits in Freddie Swain, Joshua Hammond and Tyrie Cleveland.

Harris could be hard-pressed to learn a new position quickly enough to see a lot of playing time, meaning that it could be a very frustrating fall for the former U.S. Army All-American Game quarterback.

Harris was recruited by former coach Will Muschamp to run a spread offense, but he never appeared to be a good fit for first-year coach Jim McElwain’s pro-style offense.

McElwain needed a quarterback who can sling the ball all over the field and consistently attack opposing defenses vertically. Harris’ 5-foot-11 frame made it hard for him to see targets downfield. Additionally, his penchant for holding the ball too long at times frustrated McElwain, who had no other options behind Harris this past fall.

Harris, who was a true freshman in 2014 when he started six games in place of an ineffective Jeff Driskel, took over for the suspended Will Grier in October, but never really got untracked.

He completed just 50.6 percent of his passes for the season for 1,676 yards with nine touchdowns and six interceptions.

His deficiencies became more glaring by the time Florida faced its stiffest competition at the season’s end in the likes of Florida State, Alabama and Michigan.

Harris failed to complete better than 50 percent of his attempts in any of the Gators’ last four games, throwing as many interceptions (three) as he did touchdowns over that span. A suspect offensive line didn’t help as he was sacked 18 times over Florida’s final four games and harassed on countless other occasions.

McElwain made no secret of his desire to upgrade the quarterback position. He signed Feleipe Franks, a four-star recruit and No. 5-rated pro-style QB in the 2016, three-star Kyle Trask, and brought in Oregon State transfer Luke Del Rio and Appleby, a graduate transfer from Purdue.

Both Franks and Trask have enrolled this semester and will take part in spring practice.

Florida will have one of the most interesting QB competitions this spring, but it won’t include the player who started the final eight games for them last season.
