Korey Harris‘ time in Morgantown has gone from bad to worse to, reportedly, over thanks to a rather serious incident yesterday.
According to WV Metro News, the West Virginia defensive lineman was arrested Friday on a charge of first-degree armed robbery. While head coach Dana Holgorsen has yet to comment on the player’s status, the television station noted that Harris’ name has been removed from the football program’s online roster.
Additionally, a school spokesperson stated that “[w]e have no comment on individuals who aren’t with the West Virginia football program.”
The incident that apparently led to Harris’ dismissal occurred July 12, with the details as follows:
…police said Harris and two others entered a Sturgis Street home and held two residents at gunpoint.
A relative said one of the victims recognized Harris, who was wearing his WVU-issued sweatpants with the No. 96 on them. That victim reportedly told police all three intruders were armed.
To repeat, Harris was allegedly part of an armed robbery while wearing his WVU-issued sweatpants with the No. 96 on them.
Harris was already suspended from the program in April for violating unspecified team rules.
In 2012, Harris appeared in 11 games as a freshman.
