Report: RB Jordan Scarlett suspended for Citrus Bowl

Scarlett was arrested in late December.

According to a report from 247sports, Florida true freshman running back Jordan Scarlett will not play in the Citrus Bowl against Michigan. 

Scarlett was arrested on Dec. 19 in a dorm housing complex for misdemeanor marijuana possession. 

On the year, Scarlett was the third-leading rusher on the team — accruing 181 yards rushing and a 5.3 yards-per-carry average. 

While his role on the team lessened towards the end of the season, Scarlett’s speed and explosiveness is a weapon the Gators could’ve used against a stingy Michigan defense. He’s best served out on the perimeter, where he can make players miss in space and potentially break a big play. 

As such, Florida will roll with the one-two punch in the backfield of Kelvin Taylor and Jordan Cronkrite.
