Multiple media outlets are reporting that the star redshirt freshman tested positive for performance enhancing drugs (PED), which is a violation of NCAA rules.

Florida Head Coach Jim McElwain said in a press conference that the team will appeal Grier's suspension.

Grier is expected to be out for at least the rest of the 2015 season. NCAA rules require a full-year suspension for any failure of non-school-issued PED exams. Which means that if the test Grier allegedly failed was NCAA-mandated, he may sit out the first six games of next season, as well.

Grier has helped bring Florida to victory a couple times over the current football season, including this past weekend's win over Missouri.

The Grier family are no strangers to the spotlight. His 17-year-old brother Nash and 15-year-old brother Hayes are major stars on the Internet, raking in millions of followers on Twitter and Vine.

Nash, who is the most well-known of his notable siblings through his Vine videos, tweeted cryptically earlier today:

Hayes, who is currently the youngest contestant ever on this season of Dancing With The Stars, also tweeted support for the Gator Nation yesterday:
