Seven of the nine suspended UF football players have court dates scheduled over the next two weeks for dispositions before a judge.
“Just giving you a heads up and letting you guys know that’s taking place the next two weeks,” UF interim coach Randy Shannon said. “What’s going to happen? That’s just part of the process that they have to go through.”
The players — wide receiver Antonio Callaway, running back Jordan Scarlett, linebacker James Houston, wide receiver Rick Wells, linebacker Ventrell Miller, defensive tackle Richerd Desir-Jones and defensive end Keivonnis Davis — agreed to pretrial interventions with the State Attorney’s Office in their credit card fraud case that could lead to third-degree felony complaints being dropped.
Each case will be presented to court over the next several days for formal approval. Scarlett and Wells had their 12-month pre-trial cases accepted Monday, Alachua County court records show. Houston has a court date Wednesday. Desir-Jones and Callaway have court dates next week.
The timetable for returning to the team for the seven players remains uncertain because they still have not gone through UF’s student judicial process.
“You have to talk to the university about those things,” Shannon said. “I’m the head coach at the University of Florida, I’m not the decision-maker that has to do with anything outside this football program.”
Offensive lineman Kadeem Telfort and defensive lineman Jordan Smith did not receive the pretrial intervention offer because they had too many charges recommended against them.
