Florida Gators sophomore defensive back John Huggins has been dismissed from the football program, a UF spokesman confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel Saturday.
No further details were available about what specifically triggered Huggins' dismissal.
Huggins has missed all of preseason camp while dealing with what Florida coach Dan Mullen has called a family issue.
Huggins was accused of choking a female tutor in October on the UF campus, according to records released by the school Tuesday, but Mullen said the player had already served a previously undisclosed suspension and the issue had been addressed. Huggins was not charged with a crime.
Huggins, a reserve defensive back and special-teams player last season, was one of the team’s breakout players during spring football workouts after he was involved in the October incident.
