Florida wide receiver Antonio Callaway is reportedly on track to play football in 2016.

Callaway hasn’t been a member of the team because of an unspecified student conduct violation. According to the Gainesville Sun, Callaway is currently eligible to practice and play with the team despite a lack of a resolution in the case surrounding the violation.

The wide receiver and former quarterback Treon Harris were barred from campus earlier this year and took classes online. Callaway was able to return to the school in-person over the summer and had been participating in team workouts.

Harris has transferred from Florida after he made a position switch to wide receiver.

Callaway had 35 catches for 678 yards and four scores in 2015 as a freshman. He also had 30 punt returns for 435 yards and two touchdowns and was Florida’s leading receiver in terms of yardage and touchdowns.
