But will he be prosecuted? His lawyer weighs in:

Treon Harris' lawyer, Huntley Johnson, told Sun he would be "surprised and disappointed" if he's prosecuted in alleged sexual assault case.

And there’s already speculation on Twitter that Harris is being falsely accused:

More from Dan Gillman, who works for ESPN’s affiliate 850 WRUF (this first tweet has been deleted):

If its true, then its horrible and should not be tolerated. But what if its a girl who lied? No need to jump to conclusions. Let it play out

This is more important than football, this could alter a young man's life. Innocent until proven guilty should still apply

— Daniel Gillman (@DanielGillman) October 6, 2014

SOURCE: The girl has been with Harris multiple times, she got jealous and said he sexually assaulted her

— Daniel Gillman (@DanielGillman) October 6, 2014

MORE FROM SOURCE: It is an athlete at UF, she thought they were exclusive, was upset Harris was with another girl

— Daniel Gillman (@DanielGillman) October 6, 2014

This girl was very curious about how "she said, he said" sexual assault cases worked. She asked multiple questions at orientation

— Daniel Gillman (@DanielGillman) October 6, 2014

And the winner for the most poorly timed tweet goes out to Sen. Marco Rubio, who tweeted this directly to Harris on October 4:

@t5_harris proud of you.Not just as a player but as a humble and hardworking young man.Everyone down in Miami is rooting and praying for you

— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) October 5, 2014
