Antonio Callaway is easily the best offensive weapon Florida has on its roster and is one of the best receivers in the conference, if not the country, returning this season. However, he may be in the dog house to start the season after his latest run-in with police.
According to TampaBay.com, Callaway was cited by police for possession of marijuana. The Gainesville Police Department pulled him and Kendrick Williams over for a seatbelt violation. The officer smelled marijuana in the car and found some that both of the young men claimed, according to the police report. Police found about seven grams in Callaway’s pants and another 5.4 grams in the car.
The 5’11”, 195-pound receiver has recorded 89 catches for 1,399 yards and seven touchdowns in his first two seasons in Gainesville. He’s also been pegged as a potential first-round NFL Draft pick in 2018 if he continues this kind of production and if the Gators can get their quarterback situation figured out so get him the ball even more often.
Callaway has previously admitted to marijuana use when he was being investigated for his Title IX sexual assault accusation last season. He said that he was “so stoned” that he wasn’t willing to have sex during that December 2015 incident.
There is a court case scheduled for June 6.
