Florida wide receiver Tyrie Cleveland has reportedly received an update on his legal situation.
After pleading guilty Friday to a first-degree misdemeanor charge for criminal mischief stemming from his involvement in a BB gun incident over the summer, the freshman receiver will serve six months probation and have to pay restitution and court cost, according to The Gainesville Sun’s Robbie Andreu.
Cleveland and fellow freshman receiver Rick Wells were both originally charged with felonies before the charges were reduced.
Wells signed a deferred prosecution agreement with the Florida State Attorney Office, which means if Wells meets the terms of the agreement there will be no conviction on his record.
He was also order to pay $900 in restitution charges and either make a contribution to Children’s Advocacy or perform community service.
Cleveland was not eligible for such an agreement because of a past petty theft charge in Houston. He was ranked as a 4-star prospect and the country’s No. 2 overall receiver out of high school, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
