A woman who accused Florida quarterback Treon Harris of sexual assault withdrew her claim Friday, a lawyer for Harris told ESPN.
"The young lady who claimed that Treon Harris sexually battered her has withdrawn her complaint," said Harris' attorney Huntley Johnson. "I am pleased for Treon Harris and his family."
Harris, a University of Florida student, was suspended from all team activities on Monday after he was accused of sexual assault on campus.
Harris' attorney said Thursday that the alleged victim of the assault was the "sexual aggressor with not one, but two young men" last Sunday.
Johnson also said that the woman showed "no indication of any physical or mental trauma" after the alleged assault. Sources told ESPN that the accuser was also an athlete at the University of Florida.
