Damontre Harris officially dismissed from Florida
It's official: Damontre Harris and Florida have parted ways.
We've finally reached a conclusion in the Damontre Harris-Florida saga.
The redshirt junior is officially no longer with the Gators.
“He was never disrespectful as far as his attitude,” head coach Billy Donovan said in a statement. “He was a nice kid and never blamed anybody for what was happening. We tried to help him off the court and help him with some of the challenges he was dealing with, but there was never this reciprocation of wanting to be helped, or wanting to do the things necessary.”
Harris can transfer to another school, but it's unclear whether he will have more than one semester to play.
The former South Carolina transfer was suspended before the season, and never appeared in a game for Florida. Harris, a talented 6-foot-10 big man, chose Florida over Kansas before sitting out one year. He averaged 6.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.3 blocks during his sophomore season with the Gamecocks. Unfortunately, he has been hampered by off-court issues during his college career, also getting arrested for failure to appear in court last February.
Florida is 8-2 after beating Kansas and Memphis in back-to-back games. The Gators play Fresno State on Saturday.
