The 6-foot-1, 205-pound sophomore safety had one solo tackle and one TFL in a 38-10 loss to Buffalo last weekend.

Less than a month after his dismissal from the University of Florida, former Mainland and Pine Ridge defensive back John Huggins has resurfaced on a Division I football roster.

Huggins suited up last weekend but did not start for Robert Morris, a Football Championship Subdivision program in Moon Township, Pennsylvania, in the team's opening game against Buffalo. Issued the No. 21 jersey, Huggins recorded one solo tackle and one for loss in the Colonials' 38-10 defeat.

Jim Duzyk, RMU's assistant athletic director/media relations, said Huggins is expected to play again Saturday in the team's home opener against Kentucky State.

According to a police report released in early August, a 19-year-old UF student accused Huggins of choking her during a tutoring session last October. Huggins was upset because the tutor took his phone in hopes of ensuring he would stay for the entire session, the report said.

Florida head coach Dan Mullen said it was the coaching staff's decision to dismiss Huggins, not the university's, saying the 6-foot-1, 205-pound sophomore safety was "not living up to what we expect of the Gator standard."

Ron Kozlowski, Huggins' attorney, told the Tampa Bay Times that Huggins had "absolutely no malicious intent whatsoever" and that his client "did not choke" the woman. The alleged victim did not pursue criminal charges against Huggins.

Shortly after his exit from Florida, Huggins entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Earlier in the offseason, Mullen told reporters that Huggins' absence from preseason camp was due to a "family issue." The former three-star recruit was expected to play a key role in the Gators' secondary on the heels of a strong showing in the team's spring game.

Huggins played eight times for Florida, mostly on special teams, while recording three tackles and one interception.
