Sophomore tight end A.C. Leonard decided that it would be best if he and the University of Florida part ways, ESPN’s Michael DiRocco reports.
Leonard showed promise on the field last season, but couldn’t stay out of trouble off of it, when in April he was charged with misdemeanor battery for getting in an altercation with his girlfriend. He reportedly dragged her by her hair and feet, dropped her outside their shared apartment, and then locked her out.
Following the incident, Gators coach Will Muschamp suspended Leonard, although he did eventually reinstate him for spring practice. Despite all of this, both Muschamp and Leonard agreed that maybe getting away from the University would be an opportunity to fresh.
That’s probably a good decision for Leonard, and we are wishing him the best in the future.
