Days after being reinstated for Saturday’s Kentucky game, Rick Wells and Tyrie Cleveland received an update on their legal situations.
The freshman wide receivers were arrested over the summer for their involvement in a BB gun incident, and saw their charges reduced to misdemeanors earlier in the week.
According to The Gainesville Sun‘s Robbie Andreu, Wells has signed a deferred prosecution agreement with the State Attorney Office, which means if Wells meets the terms of the agreement there will be no conviction on his record.
Andreu also reports that he must pay $900 in restitution charges and either make a contribution to Children’s Advocacy or perform community service.
Cleveland is not eligible for such an agreement because of past petty theft charge in Houston, per Andreu. Cleveland has a court date set for Sept. 22, and is expected to accept a plea deal, according to the report.
Both freshmen came in as part of Florida’s 2016 class. Wells was viewed as a 3-star recruit and the nation’s No. 80 wideout, while Cleveland was ranked as a 4-star prospect and the country’s No. 2 overall receiver, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
