Top receiver from Florida, Michigan’s first opponent, cited for marijuana possession

One of Florida’s top offensive playmakers, Antonio Callaway, found himself in trouble with the law, per a report.

According to Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times, the Gators WR was cited for having over 12 grams of marijuana in his possession. Callaway was not arrested and a court date has been scheduled for June 6.

How is this relevant to the B1G?

Michigan opens its season against Florida in the 2017 AdvoCare Classic that will take place on Sept. 2 at AT&T Stadium in Dallas.

Callaway has caught 89 passes for 1,399 yards and seven touchdowns in two seasons in Gainesville. As a sophomore in 2016, Callaway led the Gators with 54 receptions for 721 yards and three touchdowns. He was the SEC’s 10th-best receiver a year ago.

According to Baker’s article, Florida head coach has suspended players in the past for similar issues. Until the legal process plays out, there likely won’t be any information on Callaway’s status for the season-opener.

A spokesperson from the University of Florida released a statement saying “Coach McElwain is aware of it and it is being dealt with.”
